Lightbulb invalid group id redhat linux as 5 - all groups in group file are invalid groups


Good morning all;

Have encountered a strange problem, on our redhat AS 5.1 server all of the group id's are invalid, the permissions on all the directories for root is root:0 as a matter of fact all group id's on the server are numeric even though the groups are in /etc/group. When I try to change a group id I get invalid group even though the group is in the group file.

Has anyone seen this? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Norm


Found the problem, had modified nsswitch.conf and fat fingered the group line.
