But I do still need a corresponding group and the initgroups line in
'initgroups' applies to the user, so merging happens when a process
is set up to run under user account, secondary groups are filled at that
Actually, I have audio group created in IPA but video group is only
local. So group merging actually works here.
When I do a 'getent initgroups icinga@linux' I just get the
GID of the
docker group listed.
Check that you are on the system that has glibc with group merging
support and it is configured to do so.
