NAME
     groupmod -- modify an existing group on the system

SYNOPSIS
     groupmod [-ov] [-g gid] [-n newname] group

DESCRIPTION
     The groupmod utility modifies an existing group on the system.  The
     options are as follows:

     -g gid  gives the numeric group identifier to be used for the new group.

     -n new-group-name
             gives the new name which the group shall have.

     -o      allow the new group to have a gid which is already in use for
             another group.

     -v      enables verbose mode - explain the commands as they are executed.

     The groupmod utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
