Thank you for replying so quickly

Actually, any NT4.0 users may have several groups. So, why does the
command "mkgroup" extract only the primary group of each user ?

Even if the group file is modified manually to add complementary group
to users, the
command "Id -Gn" does not return all groups.

To resolve this problem we intend to rewrite the "groups" command. Is
there a best
solution ?
