Working With Group Accounts in Workgroup Manager

Group accounts are closely associated with user accounts on Mac OS X Server. Group accounts enable administrators to quickly assign a set of permissions to multiple users. While Mac OS X allows an easy way to change group assignments and permissions through the Get Info command, it does not provide a way to easily create groups or assign users to groups. Because most Mac OS X computers deal with at most a few users, the ability to create groups is not a big issue. With servers, however, the ability to easily create and modify groups is critical.

To create a group, simply click the New Group button in the Workgroup Manager toolbar and enter a name for the group. There are additional options for the group, but they are not required for the group to be functional.
