group member not able to write to group's file
I have a group (GROUP) with a number of users. I recently added a new user (NEW). NEW is able to read but not write group files, whereas all the other users in the group can read and write to the group files.
The permissions for the group files indicate that all members of group should have write permission -rwxrwxr-x
/etc/group indicates that NEW is a member of GROUP
uid=512(OLD) gid=512(OLD) groups=512(OLD),501(GROUP)
(same type of output for other OLDs)
uid=513(NEW) gid=513(NEW) groups=513(NEW),501(GROUP)
If I give others write permission NEW can write to GROUP files.
Don't know if it matters, but both OLD and NEW write to the GROUP files over an internet connection.
Anyone have any ideas as to why NEW can't write to GROUP files? Is there a maximum number of members in a group that I might have exceeded?
