NetGroupSetUsers info  Overview  Group

The NetGroupSetUsers function sets the global group membership for the specified global group. Each user specified is made a member of the global group. Users that are not specified but are currently members of the global group will have their membership revoked.

One use of NetGroupSetUsers is to replace the current membership with an entirely new membership. The typical sequence is to use the NetGroupGetUsers function, modify the returned membership list to look the way you want it to be, then call NetGroupSetUsers.
