 nissetup(1M)                                                   nissetup(1M)

 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
      nissetup - initialize a NIS+ domain

 SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
      /usr/lib/nis/nissetup [ -Y ] [ domain ]

 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
      nissetup is a shell script that sets up a NIS+ domain to serve clients
      that wish to store system administration information in a domain named
      domain. This domain should already exist prior to executing this
      command (see nismkdir(1) and nisinit(1M)).

      A NIS+ domain consists of a NIS+ directory and its subdirectories:
      org_dir and groups_dir.  org_dir stores system administration
      information and groups_dir stores information for group access

      nissetup creates the subdirectories org_dir and groups_dir in domain.
      Both subdirectories will be replicated on the same servers as the
      parent domain.  After the subdirectories are created, nissetup creates
      the default tables that NIS+ serves. These are auto_master, auto_home,
      bootparams, cred, ethers, group, hosts, mail_aliases, netmasks,
      networks, passwd, protocols, rpc, services, and timezone.  The
      nissetup script uses the nistbladm(1) command to create these tables.
      The script can be easily customized to add site specific tables that
      should be created at setup time.

      This command is normally executed just once per domain.

    Options    [Toc]    [Back]
      -Y   Specify that the domain will be served as both a NIS+ domain as
           well as an NIS domain using the backward compatibility flag. This
           will set up the domain to be less secure by making all the system
           tables readable by unauthenticated clients as well.

    Notes    [Toc]    [Back]
      While this command creates the default tables, it does not initialize
      them with data. This is accomplished with the nisaddent(1M) command.

      It is easier to use the nisserver(1M) script to create subdirectories
      and the default tables.

 WARNINGS    [Toc]    [Back]
      HP-UX 11i Version 2 is the last HP-UX release on which NIS+ is

      LDAP is the recommended replacement for NIS+.  HP fully supports the
      industry standard naming services based on LDAP.
