NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     netgroup_mkdb - generate the netgroup databases

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     netgroup_mkdb [-o database] [file]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     netgroup_mkdb creates db(3) style databases for  the  specified file.  If
     no file is specified, /etc/netgroup is used.  These databases are then
     installed into /etc/netgroup.db.  The file must  be  in  the
correct format
     (see netgroup(5)).

     The options are as follows:

     -o database
             Put the output databases in the named file.

     The  databases  are  used by the C library netgroup routines

     netgroup_mkdb exits zero on success, non-zero on failure.

FILES    [Toc]    [Back]

     /etc/netgroup.db          current netgroup database
     /etc/netgroup.db.tmp      a temporary file
     /etc/netgroup             current netgroup file

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]

     db(3), getnetgrent(3), netgroup(5)

BUGS    [Toc]    [Back]

     Because netgroup_mkdb guarantees not to  install  a  partial
     file  it must build a temporary file in the same file system
and if successful
 use rename(2) to install over the destination  file.

     If netgroup_mkdb fails it will leave the previous version of
the destination
 file intact.
