NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     netid - YP network credential file

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     Files in netid format are rare.  One lives in the YP map
     ``netid.byname''.  The format is rather  simple.   Each  row
consists of two
     items:  a key and a value.  When created by mknetid(8) there
are three
     types of records.

     The first type is information about which GIDs a UID has:

     unix.<uid>@<yp-domain> <uid>:<gid>,<gid>

     The second type contains information about hosts:

     unix.<hostname>@<yp-domain> 0:<hostname>

     The third type refers to records from  a  netid  file  other
than the two
     types above.

FILES    [Toc]    [Back]
