What is the impact of not using the default User Private Groups scheme?

Solution Unverified - Updated -

Issue

We have a custom tool to manage user accounts. Unfortunately it requires that the users created have a specific shared primary group.

This changes the default User Private Groups (UPG) scheme is the same in all RHEL releases.

  • What do we need to modify to accomodate for this? (e.g. umask, defaults?)
  • What is the impact of such a change?

Environment

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) all versions
