    service produces nogroup

    on ubuntu 20.04 ... I am running a service which ends up producing files that have the group being nogroup,
    how can I fix this?

    Re: service produces nogroup

    Usually things like this are set in configuration files.

    Some daemons like SSH have nogroup as their group. On my pretty vanilla installation, these user accounts belong to group 65534, nogroup.

    Code:
    sync:x:4:65534:sync:/bin:/bin/sync
    nobody:x:65534:65534:nobody:/nonexistent:/usr/sbin/nologin
    _apt:x:102:65534::/nonexistent:/usr/sbin/nologin
    dnsmasq:x:109:65534:dnsmasq,,,:/var/lib/misc:/usr/sbin/nologin
    kernoops:x:112:65534:Kernel Oops Tracking Daemon,,,:/:/usr/sbin/nologin
    _rpc:x:120:65534::/run/rpcbind:/usr/sbin/nologin
    statd:x:121:65534::/var/lib/nfs:/usr/sbin/nologin
    sshd:x:125:65534::/run/sshd:/usr/sbin/nologin
    Log entries usually designate the service that are generating them.
