lgroupadd - Man Page

Add an user group


lgroupadd [OPTION]... group


Adds a new user group with name group.


-g,  --gid=gid

Use group ID gid for the newly created group. A group ID is selected automatically if this option is not present.

-i,  --interactive

Ask all questions when connecting to the user database, even if default answers are set up in libuser configuration.

-r,  --reserved

The group is a system group. Groups that are not marked as system groups usually have automatically selected group IDs above a certain value (configured as LU_GIDNUMBER in libuser.conf(5)). This information is also passed to the libuser backends.

Exit Status

The exit status is 0 on success, nonzero on error.
