groupadd error in 11.31

In sam I get the following error when I try to add a new group.

Failed to add the group. There was an unknown error in /usr/sbin/groupadd. The output from this command was: Unable to unvoke under name groupadd.sam

Does anyone know how I can solve this problem?

What happens if you use the command line ?

groupadd -g number name

If command line works then use it.

SAM has never been reliable but wait.. SAM is not available in 11.31.. Been replaced by System Management Home Page. Either way. Looks like it is just reliable as it has always been.

Advice: do not use SAM or SMH. This is UNIX not Windows ;)

SAM has NOT been replaced by SMH. SMH is simply a web-based GUI overlay to the old SAM application. Just take a look at the things that SMH does behind the scenes, and you will see lots of calls to samx.
