Groups members of a group


Hello all,

is this possible to make groups members of a group (the same way aliases work for the mailing system).

If not is there a painless way to make all my nis users members of more than one local groups? Maybe set this on the nis side and not per machine setup?

Thank you
E.

Groups can't be group members.

What exactly do you need to achieve?


Cheers,
Tink
