UID Admin

Hi All,

I have to give permission to one of the groups called as "ABC" as like the permissions of the group "UNIXADM".

Could you please some one help on this issue ?
# 2  
What OS are you running? What is the exact group name and the exact username or uid that needs to be part of the group?

It sounds more like the user needs sudo or pfexec or su or whatever -- to get to root.
# 3  
Nested group is not an option in UNIX. If you want to give the user permission as UNIXADM group, why don't you add the users to the group? What's the point of creating another group to be nested.
# 4  
Unix convention has user names and group names expressed in lower carriage.
