user's groups not activated from Autosys

We use Autosys as a batch scheduler. We just find out that when it call a process for a specific user, only the gid of that user is activated. But some called program require an other group (which is set as secondary group of the user).

#id
uid=140(usrbatch) gid=107(autosys) groups=20(users)
(We have a SUID program which require group 20(users))

How a process start for a user can "activate" only the gid and not the others groups? Is it possible to always force all groups to be activated?

Hi,

Try creating a link to /etc/group called /etc/logingroup.

ln /etc/group /etc/logingroup

Re: user's groups not activated from Autosys

The ln solution appears to work.

Do we need to recreate the logingroup each time we change/add/update a group definition ? Can we use a soft link instead of a single link:

ln -s /etc/group /etc/logingroup
