I'm trying to dynamically create/remove groups using omshell. The removal
works fine if I have manually created the group in dhcpd.conf, but trying to
create new groups fails with the message "can't open object: invalid
argument" (see below). Are there any other attributes which need to be
specified other than the group name?

> connect
obj: <null>
> new group
obj: group
> set name = "test"
obj: group
name = "test"
> create
can't open object: invalid argument
obj: group
name = "test"
