Description

At installation time, some packages (eg nethserver-ejabberd, nethserver-samba) create a predefined group to grant special privileges to group members.

To avoid a possible gid clash during migrate-import event the allocated gid must be out of the ordinary account range (more than 5000).

#2 Updated by Davide Principi over 6 years ago

If any of Removable=no or Builtin=yes prop is present a "builtin" group is generated by group-create-unix action.

The gid for the builtin group is allocated by the underlying libuser, as configured in /etc/login.defs.

Standard groups still receive the gid from AccountsDB::get_next_uid sequence.

builtin1=group
    Description=BuiltinGroup1
    Members=user01,user02
    Removable=no

builtin2=group
    Builtin=yes
    Description=BuiltinGroup2
    Members=user01,user02
