Off the top of my head I think it was around the 255 mark. To get around this you can use nested groups.

In your case you could create another group called develop2 and another called develop3 and develop4 and so on...

Then you would remove users from the develop group and add them to develop2, develop3, develop4 ..etc . then you add develop2 develop3 develop4 to develop

So your develop groups would look something like this.

Code:
develop::200:root,vobadm,develop2,develop3,develop4
develop2::200:bej00189,bej00183,bej00041,bej00058,bej00206
develop3::200:bej00147,bej00164,bej00161,bej00113,bej00197
develop4::200:bej00200,bej00155,bej00166,bej00244,bej00119
:
etc...[


I got it and I will try :-)

Thanks a lot!!!

NAME
groups - Displays your group membership SYNOPSIS
groups [user] DESCRIPTION
The groups command writes to standard output the groups to which you or the specified user belong. The Tru64 UNIX operating system allows a user to belong to many different groups at the same time. Your primary group is specified in the /etc/passwd file. Once you are logged in, you can change your active group with the newgrp shell command (see sh). When you create a file, its group ID is that of your active group. Other groups that you belong to are specified in the /etc/group file. If you belong to more than one group, you can access files belonging to any of those groups without changing your primary group ID. These are called your concurrent groups. NOTES
The /etc/passwd and /etc/group files must be on the same node. EXAMPLES
To determine your group membership, enter: groups The groups to which you belong will be displayed. For example: devel prod FILES
Contains group information. Contains user information. SEE ALSO
Commands: csh(1), ksh(1), sh(1) Functions: initgroups(3), setgroups(2) groups(1)
