GROUPADD(8)             NetBSD System Manager's Manual             GROUPADD(8)

NAME
     groupadd -- add a group to the system

SYNOPSIS
     groupadd [-ov] [-g gid] [-r lowgid..highgid] group

DESCRIPTION
     The groupadd utility adds a group to the system.  See group(8) for more
     information about EXTENSIONS.  The options are as follows:

     -g gid  Give the numeric group identifier to be used for the new group.

     -o      Allow the new group to have a gid which is already in use for
             another group.

     -r lowgid..highgid
             Set the low and high bounds of a gid range for new groups.  A new
             group can only be created if there are gids which can be assigned
             inside the range.  This option is included if built with
             EXTENSIONS.

     -v      Enable verbose mode - explain the commands as they are executed.
             This option is included if built with EXTENSIONS.

EXIT STATUS
     The groupadd utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
