Data /var/ypfiles-> Group file full

I need to add users to the group file for accounts, however - due to too many characters/users already in a group the file errors out when I run /var/yp->make on it.

Any ideas/solutions?

Is it possible to create a new group, then reference its alias in the existing full group? Will this show up properly when the user does a groups/id command?

Thanks! W.

We created another group name using same GID and it appears to work just fine. Thanks anyways. W.
