I have 2 groups one call A and one called B I want to give the same level of access to both groups

is there any way to copy group A and have assume group B assume it's permssions

I know I could nest a group but in this case am just wondering if it is possible to copy a groups access

    I assume that by copying the group you are trying to keep the same permissions you have assigned to files?

    Like if group A has access to the HR and DEV share and you want to copy it and make a group B with the same access to the same shares.

    if you need to provide same level of access to A and B why not just make one group and put all users in it? that way you can simplify administration. just my 2 cents. :)

    Not possible. Not sure why you'd want to.

    Recent: 11/2019 - RHCSA (RHEL 7); 2/2019 - Updated VCP to 6.5 (just a few days before VMware discontinued the re-cert policy...)

    In the end I ended up nesting groups created a domain local group added GG groups into it

    I was more curious as I'm trying to restructure a lot of things on the files serer I admin

    before all users were in added in and no one was in groups.. I've just started trying to come up with a logical way of organizing the groups.
