       smbldap-groupmod - Modify a group


       smbldap-groupmod [-g gid [-o]] [-a] [-r rid] [-s sid] [-t group type]
       [-n group_name ] [-m members(,)] [-x members (,)] group


       The smbldap-groupmod command modifies the system account files to
       reflect the changes that are specified on the command line. The options
       which apply to the smbldap-groupmod command are

       -g gid The numerical value of the group’s ID. This value must be
       unique, unless the -o option is used. The value must be non negative.
       Any files which the old group ID is the file roup ID must have the file
       group ID changed manually.

       -n group_name
          The name of the group will be changed from group to group_name.

       -m members
          The members to be added to the group in comma-delimeted form.

       -x members
          The members to be removed from the group in comma-delimted form.

          add an automatic Security ID for the group (SID). The rid of the
       group is calculated from the gidNumber of the group as
       rid=2*gidNumber+1001. Thus the resulted SID of the group is $SID-$rid
       where $SID and $rid are the domain SID and the group rid

       -s sid
          set the group SID.
          The SID must be unique and defined with the domain Security ID
       ($SID) like sid=$SID-rid where rid is the group rid.

       -r rid
          set the group rid.
          The SID is then calculated as sid=$SID-rid where $SID is the domain
       Security ID.

       -t group type
          set the NT Group type for the new group. Available values are 2
       (domain group), 4 (local group) and 5 (builtin group). The default
       group type is 2.


       smbldap-groupmod -g 253 development This will change the GID of the
       ’development’ group to ’253’.

       smbldap-groupmod -n Idiots Managers This will change the name of the
       ’Managers’ group to ’Idiots’.

       smbldap-groupmod -m "jdoe,jsmith" "Domain Admins" This will add ’jdoe’
       and ’jsmith’ to the ’Domain Admins’ group.

       smbldap-groupmod -x "jdoe,jsmith" "Domain Admins" This will remove
       ’jdoe’ and ’jsmith’ from the ’Domain Admins’ group.
