    Command:

    groupdel

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           groupdel group
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           The groupdel command modifies the system account files, deleting all
           entries that refer to group. The named group must exist.
    
    
    

    CAVEATS

           You may not remove the primary group of any existing user. You must
           remove the user before you remove the group.
    
           You should manually check all file systems to ensure that no files
           remain owned by this group.
    
    
    

    CONFIGURATION

           The following configuration variables in /etc/login.defs change the
           behavior of this tool:
    
           MAX_MEMBERS_PER_GROUP (number)
               Maximum members per group entry. When the maximum is reached, a new
               group entry (line) is started in /etc/group (with the same name,
               same password, and same GID).
    
               The default value is 0, meaning that there are no limits in the
               number of members in a group.
    
               This feature (split group) permits to limit the length of lines in
               the group file. This is useful to make sure that lines for NIS
               groups are not larger than 1024 characters.
    
               If you need to enforce such limit, you can use 25.
    
               Note: split groups may not be supported by all tools (even in the
               Shadow toolsuite). You should not use this variable unless you
               really need it.
    
    
    

    FILES

           /etc/group
               Group account information.
    
           /etc/gshadow
               Secure group account information.
    
    
    

    EXIT VALUES

           The groupdel command exits with the following values:
    
           0
               success
    
           2
               invalid command syntax
