NAME
sss_groupadd - create a new group SYNOPSIS
sss_groupadd [options] GROUP DESCRIPTION
sss_groupadd creates a new group. These groups are compatible with POSIX groups, with the additional feature that they can contain other groups as members. OPTIONS
-g,--gid GID Set the GID of the group to the value of GID. If not given, it is chosen automatically. -?,--help Display help message and exit. THE LOCAL DOMAIN
In order to function correctly, a domain with "id_provider=local" must be created and the SSSD must be running. The administrator might want to use the SSSD local users instead of traditional UNIX users in cases where the group nesting (see sss_groupadd(8)) is needed. The local users are also useful for testing and development of the SSSD without having to deploy a full remote server. The sss_user* and sss_group* tools use a local LDB storage to store users and groups. SEE ALSO
