Setting the maximum number of auxiliary UNIX groups allowed for a user

If you use Kerberos V5 authentication, the maximum number of auxiliary UNIX groups that a user can be a member of is 32 by default. You can increase the maximum to 256 groups by setting the nfs.max_num_aux_groups option to 256.

About this task

If you do not use Kerberos V5 authentication, the maximum number of auxiliary UNIX groups that a user can be a member of is 16.

Step

  1. To change the maximum number of auxiliary UNIX groups that a user can be a member of, enter the following command:
    options nfs.max_num_aux_groups [32 | 256]

    The default value is 32.

    For more information about the nfs.max_num_aux_groups option, see the na_options(1) man page.
