That did it. I was making it too complicated.

When an application from within Qshell run chgrp, what "group" does it reference? The user appears to be validated against System i user profiles but what about the group? I get an error of:

chown: 3002-132 thisgroup is an unknown groupname.

So where to I find the "thisgroup" definition (or how do I add it)? Looks like groupadd isn't supported (which is no surprise if PASE is mapping that back to an i5/OS command).

The user profile that you use on the chgrp command needs to have a group profile of *NONE in order for it to be considered a group.

I just created two new user's on my system ... DEV1 had a group of *NONE and DEV2 had a group of DEV1.

When I ran 'chgrp dev1 filename', it worked fine ... when I ran 'chgrp dev2 filename', I got the unknown group error.
