No that is not the problem. The passwd itself fails and I cannot change

It adds the group alright. It is the passwd setting that fails. It is
some PAM setup issue. I do not know for sure if it is. If so what do I
need to fix it.

Thanks and Regards

You haven't said about which distribution you actually are using ?
