privgroup

Anyone knows what's the syntax for the file /etc/privgroup that is called by /sbin/init.d/set_prvgrp?
I need to add the group dba with the MLOCK privilege, after setting it with setprivgrp, for it to work after future reboots.
thanks.

Re: privgroup

0. Log in as root.
1. Create a file /etc/privgroup
2. Make the following entry in this file
sybase MLOCK
3. Run the following command
# setprivgrp -f /etc/privgroup
4. Log out as root

/sbin/init.d/set_prvgrp executes the command in step 3 above on system
startup.
