Here at Rutgers, we also use groups for accounting purposes. A range of groups is designated as loginable groups. Users are assigned groups from this range to indicate the purpose of their presence on the machine. Without any loginable groups, a user cannot login.
Groups which are not designated loginable are used only for file sharing. A user with only file sharing groups will not be able to login.
The following table describes the groups used on the DCS faculty machines. Groups listed in boldface are loginable. The others are for file sharing purposes only. (The descriptions are what was given when the group was registered. If you would like to clarify the description of a group, please email email@example.com.)
