NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       svc.conf - Database service selection configuration file

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       This  file is obsolete, except for statically-built applications
 and  sendmail,  if  the  Name  Service  Switch  is
       installed. See nsswitch.conf(5) for more information.  The
       /etc/svc.conf file is a mandatory system file that  allows
       you  to  select  the  desired  services  on a per database
       basis.  The default /etc/svc.conf file has  local  as  the
       service  selected  for  each  database.  This file must be
       modified when adding or removing a naming service, such as
       the  Network  Information Service or BIND.  The valid services
 are local,  yp,  and  bind.   Modifications  to  the
       /etc/svc.conf  file  can  be  made  with  an editor or the
       /usr/sbin/svcsetup command for database service selection.
       Changes take effect immediately.  The recommended configuration
 is that you have local as the first entry  for  all

RESTRICTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       White space is allowed only after commas or newlines.

       You  must have local as the first entry for the passwd and
       hosts databases.

       You must have yp as the entry for the netgroup database.

EXAMPLES    [Toc]    [Back]

       The following is a sample /etc/svc.conf  file:  aliases=yp
       group=local,yp    hosts=local,bind,yp   netgroup=yp   networks=local,yp
       passwd=local       protocols=local,yp
       rpc=local,yp services=local

       SECLEVEL=BSD           # for backwards compatibility ONLY
