- Why "useradd -g" do not update /etc/group file ?
Add a new user by following command line:
# useradd -u 1000 user1
You can find in /etc/group, a new record of "user1:x:1000" is created.
Add a new group and a new user by following command lines:
# groupadd -g 1000 group1 # useradd -u 1000 -g group1 user1
There is no error but you can not find any information about user1 in /etc/group.
