NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       svcsetup - set up the svc.conf file

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]


DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]


       This  file is obsolete, except for statically-built applications
 and sendmail, if the Name  Service  Switch  is  in
       use. See nsswitch.conf(5) for more information.

       The  svcsetup  script  modifies  the svc.conf file on your
       system. The svc.conf file must be  modified  whenever  you
       configure  or remove a database distribution service, such
       as the Network Information Service (NIS, formerly  YP)  or
       BIND  (for  the  hosts database only). Changes take effect

       Modifications to the svc.conf file can also be made via an

       When  you  run  svcsetup,  do  the following: Choose the m
       option from the Configuration menu.   Enter  the  numbers,
       separated by a space, from the Change Menu that correspond
       to the databases whose entries you want to modify.   Indicate,
  for  each database that you selected in step 2, the
       order in which you want the services  queried.  Selections
       3,  4,  5,  and  6  are valid for the <interactive>(hosts)
       database only.

RESTRICTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       The recommended configuration is that you  have  local  as
       the  first entry for all databases, except possibly hosts.

       The Security Integration Architecture (SIA) is now responsible
  for  setting  the  service order for the passwd and
       group  databases.  The  passwd  and  group  entry  in  the
       svc.conf file remain for backwards compatibility only. The
       SECLEVEL entry also remains  for  backwards  compatibility
       only; SIA now configures system security.

       Only NIS can serve the netgroup database, even if local is
       specified for the netgroup entry.

       You must be superuser to run svcsetup.
