Question Can a group be a member of another group?


Hi all,

Permission management in Active Directory (where I'm from) is helped by making groups members of other groups.

Can Linux do this too? Specifically, RHEL4.

I have a significant number of users that all have to be added to a significant number of groups.


Sean.

You should investigate ACL (access control lists).
