NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     nsadmin - Name Service Administration Utility

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     nsadmin [command] [arguments]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The nsadmin utility is used for administration of the Unified Name
     Service interface (see nsd(1m)).  The nsd daemon maintains	a filesystem
     typically mounted on /ns using various directory service protocols	to
     provide information.  It also maintains local cache files for each
     lookup.  The nsadmin command allows manipulation of the name space	and
     cache files maintained by the nsd daemon.	Run with no arguments it acts
     as	a command line interpreter and can be given multiple commands.	Each
     command is	followed by arguments and terminated by	a newline.

COMMANDS    [Toc]    [Back]

	  Lists	all cache file names.

     cat map ...
	  This cats the	enumeration file for each named	map.  The list of maps
	  can be found using the maps command.

     clean cache ...
	  This remove entries that have	timed out from a cache file.

     clear cache key ...
	  This removes each of the named keys from the specified cache file.
	  The list of cache files can be found using the caches	command.

     domain domainname
	  This sets the	current	domain for flush and clear commands.

     dump cache	[key] ...
	  This prints out some or all cached entries for the named map.	 If no
	  keys are named then it prints	out all	entries	for that map.  The
	  list of caches can be	found by using the caches command.

     flush [cache] ...
	  This removes all keys	in each	of the named cache files.  If no cache
	  files	are named then it removes all keys from	all cache files.  The
	  list of cache	files can be found by using the	caches command.

     grep map expression ...
	  Does a regular expression search over	the named map.	Multiple
	  perl(1) style	regular	expressions can	be given and the lines which
	  match	any of the expressions will be printed.	 A list	of maps	can be
	  found	by using the maps command.

     help [command] ...
	  Displays a help line for each	of the named commands.	If no commands
	  are given then help will be given for	all of the commands.

     maps This just lists the names of all the defined maps for	this system.

     match map key ...
	  This looks up	one or more key	in the named map.  The list of maps
	  can be found using the maps command.

     remove [cache] ...
	  Invalidates and removes the named cache file.	 If no cache file is
	  listed, all cache files will be removed.  Cache files	cannot safely
	  be removed using rm since multiple running processes may be holding
	  them open.  Using this command the file can be safely	removed	and
	  any running processes	will reopen the	file on	next use.

     restart [options] ...
	  Kills	nsd and	removes	all cache files, and restarts nsd will the
	  default options and any extras passed	on the command line.

	  Monitors the nsd process and restarts	on failure.

DIAGNOSTICS    [Toc]    [Back]

     codes are listed below.  Other error codes	may be returned	directly from
     a system call.

     EINVAL    The arguments passed to the command are invalid.
