Description

If I understand things correctly, after implementing Bug #6012 the groups with scope set to "Remote" are not supposed to be stored in /etc/group. However, when you edit an existing group and change the scope from "Local" to "Remote", it still stays in /etc/group.

Well, there's obviously much more wrong here, this actually requires a reboot to take effect. Also, adding/removing users to/from a group requires a reboot to take effect.

you would have to teach each affected process to re-run initgroups(3); setgroups(2); in order for them all to have a new group vector in their individual proc structures.

Changing group scope from local to remote now deletes the group from /etc/group
Added a warning message to indicate that a reboot may be required for this to take effect.
