The format for Unix Groups has changed in BoKS Manager 7.0 and later. The new format is host/Host Group:groupname(gid).

This change means that a migration of Unix Groups and assignments to users and User Classes is required when you upgrade from a pre-7.0 BoKS version

to BoKS Manager 7.0 or later.

The migration process requires planning and is best started well before upgrading to BoKS Manager 7.0 or later.


Fox Technologies provides a Unix Group Migration Tool to assist with migrating the Unix Groups and assignments configured in your BoKS domain to

the 7.0 and later format.

This tool is available for download from the FoxT customer services website, and includes a manual with details of the migration procedure.
