Split large group membership

Specify whether you want to split up or truncate large groups. In operating environments that don’t support large groups, commands that return group information may fail or return incomplete results when a group has a membership list that exceeds the maximum size allowed. Typically, the maximum size allowed for groups is 1024 bytes, which is roughly equivalent to 125 users. If you have large groups that exceed the 1024-byte limit, you can set this parameter to true to have those groups automatically split into multiple groups when they reach the maximum size.

The default value is true for Solaris, HPUX, and IRIX but false for all other operating environments.

Note:   This policy has no effect in Mac OS X environments.

This group policy modifies the nss.split.group.membership setting in the agent configuration file.
