Celerra datamover group file doc bug

We're testing NFSv4 which requires a user/group database (either local files or LDAP/NIS) on the datamover.

Username/UID mapping was working properly, but group/GID mapping was not.

The Celerra Naming Services (6.0) doc on page 21 lists the format of the group file as:

groupname:gid:user_list

But the proper format includes a field for the group password:

groupname:password:gid:user_list

The password field is often blank (x).

Hope this helps someone else avoid the hassle we ran into.
