    You have created a new group named certforums with a GID of 400. You want to change the GID from 400 to 405. Of the options below, which one is the correct command to accomplish your goal? Choose only one answer.

    1. groupadd -c 400 certforums
    2. groupadd -g 400 certforums
    3. groupadd -n 400 certforums
    4. groupadd -s 400 certforums
    5. groupadd -c 400 405 certforums
    6. groupadd -g 400 405 certforums
    7. groupadd -n 400 405 certforums
    8. groupadd -s 400 405 certforums
    9. None of the above. You must use the addgroup command instead.

    Answer later.

    I'll go for what's behind door number 10, groupmod.

    You're confusing me, trip. Do you have access to some undocumented functions for these utilities? The only way I know of to change the gid of a group is through groupmod.

    Oops.

    My bad. I had meant to write the correct answer as:

    "9 None of the above. You must use the groupmod command". The correct answer would actually be:
    "groupmod -g 405 certforums".

    I'll go stand in the corner for awhile.
