NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       convauth  -  convert security authorization databases into
       database format

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       /usr/tcb/bin/convauth [-O] [-d dblist] [-q] [-r] [-u  uid]
       [-v] [-H]

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Specifies  which databases to convert.  Choose one or more
       of the letters d, f, p, t, or v.

              d  -  /etc/auth/system/default  to   /etc/auth/system/default.db

              f   -   /etc/auth/system/files   to  /etc/auth/system/files.db

              p - /tcb/files/auth/?/* to  /tcb/files/auth.db  and

              t   -   /etc/auth/system/ttys   to   /etc/auth/system/ttys.db

              v -  /etc/auth/system/devassign  to  /etc/auth/system/devassign.db

              If no -d option is given, the default database list
              is as though -d pt were specified.  Suppresses nonerror
  output.   Keeps  all  migrated  user-profile
              entries   in   /tcb/files/auth.db    rather    than
              /var/tcb/files/auth.db.  Specifies the minimum general
 user UID. User-profile entries with uids lower
              than  this  value  (default 100) are written to the
              /tcb/files/auth.db file, and profile  entries  with
              UIDs  greater than or equal to this value are written
 to the /var/tcb/files/auth.db file.  Gives more
              verbose  messages.  Reverts from *.db files to oldstyle
 databases. Not allowed for auth.db.  Prints a
              help messages and exits with no further processing.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The convauth utility is used  to  convert  existing  ASCII
       system authorization database files to database format for
       faster access and updates.  In the case of  the  ttys  and
       user-profile  data,  this greatly improves the performance
       of login when using enhanced security.

       The convauth utility is executed  by  update  installation

EXAMPLES    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  default  conversion done to convert the user profiles
       and terminals information: # convauth

       The  same  conversion  explicitly  showing   the   default
       databases  and general user UID assumptions: # convauth -d
       tp -u 100

       Conversion of only the device assignment data: #  convauth
       -d v

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]
