NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     nisSetup -	Set up Network Information System

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     /usr/sysadm/privbin/nisSetup [-d <domainname>] [-t	<type>]	[-n]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     nisSetup configures the NIS domain	name, and turns	on/off the NIS state (

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

     -d	<domainname>

     -n	  Resart the network after making the changes.	This has the effect of
	  killing any applications with	files open on a	network	file system or
	  current working directories in network file system.  If this switch
	  is not used, the system will not be fully configured until the
	  network is restarted (such as	with a reboot).

     -t	<type>
	  type is one of client, server, or master, representing yp, ypserv,
	  or ypmaster respectively.  Default is	client ( yp )

	  Set the NIS state on or off (	chkconfig yp on/off ).	This command
	  will turn the	nsd service on (chkconfig nsd on) if NIS is being
	  turned on.  yp/ypserv/ypmaster is turned on/off depending upon the
	  type ( -t flag ).
