NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       binlog.auth  -   authorization  file  for accepting remote
       binlog messages

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       # format:  Each fully qualified host name  on  a  separate
       line hostname.domain_name

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The /etc/binlog.auth file specifies which remote hosts are
       allowed to forward binlog messages to the local host.  For
       the  sake  of  security,  only messages coming from remote
       hosts listed in the local /etc/binlog.auth  file  will  be
       logged by the binlogd daemon.

       Each  remote host name should appear in a separate line in
       /etc/binlog.auth.  A line started with the # character  is
       considered as a comment and is thus ignored.

       A  host  name  must  be  a  complete  domain  name such as
       trout.zk3.dec.com.  If a domain host  name  is  given,  it
       must either appear in the local /etc/hosts file or be able
       to be resolved by the name server.

       Note that a host name can have at most as many  characters
       as    defined    by   the   MAXHOSTNAMELEN   constant   in
       <sys/param.h>, although each line in the  /etc/binlog.auth
       file can have up to 512 characters.

       The  /etc/binlog.auth file must be owned by root and has a
       permission of 0600.

       If the /etc/binlog.auth file does not exist or  it  exists
       but  is empty or has no valid remote host names in it, the
       system will assume no remote host is  allowed  to  forward
       binlog messages to the local host.

       To  invoke a new version of the /etc/binlog.auth file, run
       the following command (as the super user) to re-initialize
       the binlogd daemon: kill -HUP `cat /var/run/binlogd.pid`

EXAMPLES    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  following  example  provides  a typical authorization
       file: # format:  Each fully qualified host name on a separate
 line c3poid.rvo.dec.com r2d2id.ckt.dec.com
