Does anyone know if ngroups_max can be set to > 32 in Solaris 10?  Will 64 work?  Note that we don't use NFS.

Thanks, Allan

    Sorry, 32 is the max value in the kernel for ngroup_max.

    I agree with yuzh, 32 is the maximum.
    If you like to allow access to some files to more groups, you may use additional permissions with ACLs:
    man acl
    man setfacl
