Changing the limit on simultaneous group membership
The maximum number of groups that a user can be in at one time
is 8 by default. There are no warning messages displayed when
this number is exceeded, but when the
command is used to extend a user's group list using the
verbose option (-v), this error message is displayed:
sg: unable to add group group as supplemental group list full
This limit is controlled by the NGROUPS tunable kernel
parameter. To change this value, use the Hardware/Kernel Manager
Select category 7, ``User and group configuration'', then change
the value of NGROUPS. The kernel must then be relinked and booted
for the new value to take effect. See
``Relinking the kernel''
for more information.
