Hello all. Is it possible in linux (red hat) to have a group in another group? For example:

Group webadmin
Group site1
Group site2

site1 only has access to site1. site2 only has access to site2. but i want webadmin group to have access to everything that the groups site1 and site2 have. Can I do this?

Thx.

AFAIK there is no "standard" way to do it, probablysome proprietary 3'rd party software
