Description Morten Finborud 2003-01-23 14:34:06 UTC
Description of problem:
Commands accessing group names fails when the group name is a nis group spread 
over several entries (due to the number of members in group). Only the group id 
is returned from commands like groups or ls -la

Example:
ypcat group |grep :1300:
hda:!:1300:a110915,a108743,a100141,u21081,a793918,<lotta more names>
hda2:!:1300:a113014,a794279,a793203,a792412,a455915,<lotta more names>



Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
sh-utils 2.0.12


How reproducible: 100%


Steps to Reproduce:
1. groups a100141


Actual results:

id: cannot find name for group ID 1300
id: cannot find name for group ID 3100
id: cannot find name for group ID 1668
id: cannot find name for group ID 102
id: cannot find name for group ID 2020
id: cannot find name for group ID 2800

Same happens when doing a ls -la   (group name does not appear)
-rw-rw----    1 a100141  1300           91 Jan 23 14:54 group.txt   

Expected results (as on a RedHat 7.3 installation):

a100141 : hda nho_tavd petro utfo dip ios ediv hdaunix irap recall lmadmin sd ut
fit charisma    

-rw-rw----    1 a100141  hda           91 Jan 23 14:54 group.txt   

Additional info:

This works perfect on RedHat 7.3

I think this is fixed for future releases.
