How to Create an SMB Group

Before You Begin

You must create an Oracle Solaris group before you can create an SMB group. For more information, see How to Add a Group in Managing User Accounts and User Environments in Oracle Solaris 11.4.

  1. Become an administrator.
  2. Choose the name of the group to create.

    You might choose a name that reflects a common set of tasks that the group can perform or the organization to which the group members belong.

  3. Create the SMB group.
    $ smbadm create-group [-d description] group-name

    The -d option is used to specify a textual description of the SMB group.

    For example, to create a group called wsales, type:

    $ smbadm create-group -d "Sales Force for the Western Region" wsales
