NETGROUP_MKDB(8)		   BSD System Manager's Manual			 NETGROUP_MKDB(8)

NAME
     netgroup_mkdb -- generate the netgroup database

SYNOPSIS
     netgroup_mkdb [-o database] [file]

DESCRIPTION
     netgroup_mkdb creates a db(3) database for the specified file.  If no file is specified,
     then /etc/netgroup is used.  This database is installed into /var/db/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 (see getnetgrent(3)).

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

FILES
     /var/db/netgroup.db       The current netgroup database
     /var/db/netgroup.db.tmp   A temporary file
     /etc/netgroup	       The current netgroup file

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

BUGS
     Because netgroup_mkdb guarantees not to install a partial destination 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.
