Using pts Groups
PTS groups provide a way to grant a list of people access to your files and directories on Andrew. Once a pts group has been created, you can grant it access to an Andrew directory just like you would an individual userid.
The pts program lets you create, view, and maintain PTS groups. To view a full list of pts options, type the following at the Andrew Unix prompt:
You can only create, delete, view, and maintain the pts groups that you own, or pts groups that you are a member of that are self-owned (e.g., the pts group owns the group so any group member can maintain the pts group).
