Changing a user’s primary group

Changing a user’s primary group

The user’s primary group applies only to users who log on to the network through Services for Macintosh, or to users who run POSIX-compliant applications. If you are not using these services, there is no need to change the primary group from Domain Users, which is the default setting.

To change a user’s primary group, right-click the account, click Properties, and go to the Member Of tab. On the Member Of tab, select a group from the list and click the Set Primary Group button.

NOTE:Only a global or universal security group can be set as the primary group. If you select a group with group scope set to Domain local, or a distribution group, the Set Primary Group button is unavailable.

To change a user’s primary group

  1. In the console tree, locate and select the folder that contains the user account.
  2. In the details pane, right-click the user account, and then click Properties.
  3. On the Member Of tab in the Properties dialog box, click the group that you want to set as the user’s primary group, and then click Set Primary Group.

NOTE:

  • Primary groups are used exclusively by Macintosh clients and POSIX-compliant applications. Unless you are using these services, there is no need to change the primary group from Domain Users, which is the default value.
  • A user’s primary group must be in the same domain as the user’s account and the primary group must be either a global or universal security group.
  • Setting the user’s primary group membership to a value other than Domain Users may adversely affect performance as all users in the domain are members of Domain Users. If the user’s primary group is set to another group, it may cause the group membership to exceed the supported maximum number of members.
