     Original Question:
     Is it possible to toggle the default maximum number of groups a user
     can be in ?
     Currently my users cannot be in more groups than 16.


The command "getconf NGROUPS_MAX" returns 16. You can increase this
up to 32 by setting ngroups_max in /etc/system (and rebooting) *but*
you will upset NFS (if you use it) which has a maximum of 16.
Or Casper Dik's Solaris 2 FAQ:
You might be able to get round it by using acls and/or roles instead.
