User groups resolution

Content Software for File CLI Reference

Part Number
NFS-W can authenticate more than 16 user groups, but it requires the external resolution of the user's groups, which means associating users with their respective group-IDs outside of the NFS protocol.
Note: Configuring more than 16 user groups is not supported with the legacy NFS.


  1. Configure interface groups:Ensure that the allow-manage-gids option is set to on (default value). See Create interface groups.
  2. Configure NFS client permissions: Set the manage-gids option to on for the NFS client to enable external group-IDs resolution. See Set the NFS client permissions.
  3. Set up servers for group-IDs retrieval:Configure relevant servers to retrieve user group-IDs information. This task is specific to NFS-W and does not involve Content Software for File management. See the following procedure.
