GROUPMOD(8)                 System Manager's Manual                GROUPMOD(8)



NAME
       groupmod - Modify a group

SYNOPSIS
       groupmod [-g gid [-o]] [-n group_name ] group

DESCRIPTION
       The  groupmod  command modifies the system account files to reflect the
       changes that are specified on the  command  line.   The  options  which
       apply to the groupmod command are

       -g gid The  numerical  value  of  the  group's  ID.  This value must be
              unique, unless the -o option is used.  The value  must  be  non-
              negative.   Values  between  0 and 99 are typically reserved for
              system groups.  Any files which the old group  ID  is  the  file
              group ID must have the file group ID changed manually.

       -n group_name
              The name of the group will be changed from group to group_name.
