NAME

      system chmanager - change the manager of a system


SYNOPSIS

      system chmanager system_name new_userid [new_groupid]


DESCRIPTION

      The command system chmanager changes the manager of system_name to
      new_userid.  The ownership of the files and directories in the system
      structure is changed, and the overview file is updated with
      information from the passwd file entry for the new manager.
      If a new groupid is specified, that groupid is also used in the
      ownership change.  If no groupid is specified, the login group of the
      specified userid is used.

DIAGNOSTICS

      Only the user who is listed as system manager in the overview file is
      allowed to change system manager. For other users, system chmanager
      will exit with an error message.


WARNINGS

      If the user who is listed as system manager in the overview file does
      not have permissions to change the ownership of all files in the
      system, the ownership will be changed only for those files he/she does
      have permission for.  For other files, error messages will be issued.
      If this happens, ask the user who owns the file(s) to transfer the
      ownership manually using chown.
