tpgrpmod—Modifies a group on the system.


tpgrpmod [-g GID] [-n name] grpname


The tpgrpmod modifies the definition of the specified group by modifying the appropriate entry to the BEA Tuxedo security data files. A BEA Tuxedo configuration with SECURITY set to USER_AUTH, ACL, or MANDATORY_ACL must be created before you can run this command successfully.

The following options are available.

-g GID

The new group identifier for the group. This group identifier must be a non-negative decimal integer below 16K. Group identifier 0 is reserved for the "other" group.

-n name

A string of printable characters that specifies the new name of the group. It may not include a comma (,), colon (:) or a newline (\n).


The current name of the group to be modified.

Before running this command you must: (a) configure the application, using either the graphical user interface or tmloadcf(1); and (b) set the TUXCONFIG environment variable to point to your TUXCONFIG file. tpgrpmod must be run on the configuration MASTER if the application is not active. If the application is active, this command can run on any active node.


This command is available on any platform on which the BEA Tuxedo server environment is supported.


The tpgrpmod command exits with a return code of 0 upon successful completion.
