 passwd_export(1m)                   OSF                   passwd_export(1m)

 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
      passwd_export - Creates local password and group files

 SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
      passwd_export [-d dir_name] [-m max_entries] [-h[elp]] [-n] [-s] [-v]

 OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]
      [-d dir_name]
                The name of the directory to store the password, group, and
                organization files created by passwd_export.  If you do not
                enter a directory name, the files are stored in the /etc

      -h[elp]   Display help information.

      -n        Ignore passwd_override and group_override file entries.
                Without this option, passwd_export applies the override
                entries from both files to the local password and group
                files it creates.

      [-m max_entries]
                The maximum number of entries that can be stored in the
                local files.

      -s        Sort the local password and group file entries by UNIX
                number.  If you do not specify this option, the entries are
                in order as they are retrieved from the registry.

      -v        Run in verbose mode.

      -x        Do not create entries for users with OMIT as their encrypted
                password in the passwd_override and group_override files.
                See the passwd_override and group_override reference pages
                for further details about omitting users.

 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
      The dceshared/bin/passwd_export command creates local password and
      group files from registry data.  These files are used when the network
      registry is unavailable and by programs that use the original UNIX
      passwd and group interfaces instead of the DCE interfaces. Use
      passwd_export to keep these local files consistent with the registry

      When passwd_export runs, it makes backup copies of the current
      password and group files, if they exist.  The files are named,
      respectively, passwd.bak and group.bak.

      By default, the backups are stored and the new files created in the
      /etc directory.  You can override the default by supplying a directory
      name with the -d option.

    Running passwd_export    [Toc]    [Back]
      The passwd_export command is commonly run with an entry in
      /usr/lib/crontab.  For example, to update the files every hour, the
      entry is

      0 * * * * dcesharedbin/passwd_export

      In large network environments, it is a good idea to stagger the times
      passwd_export is run.

      Commands: rgy_edit(1m)

      Files: group(5), passwd(5), passwd_override(5), group_override(5)
