Background:

 

The error about untouchable group comes up because the GID of the user is outside the range defined in seos.ini. 
 
Instructions:

 

1. Stop ControlMinder
2. Edit seos.ini file
3. Adjust range value
4. Start ConrolMinder
For example, if UID/GID to include numbers range 0-29999 to be allowed, the range value can be set in seos.ini like below.
AllowedUidRange = -1,30000 
AllowedGidRange = -1,30000
