      The AIX user provider now handles the groups property in a manner that's consistent with other Linux user providers. Specifically, it reads the user's groups from the /etc/group file and implements inclusive/minimum membership correctly, even when the user's primary group changes.

      Description

      When a user is in a group on a Linux server and a user resource is created for that user, if new groups are specified in the resource, the user is moved out of his previous groups into the groups specified.

      In AIX the user stays in his old groups and gets added to his new groups. The AIX functionality should mimic the Linux functionality.
