ypinit -- initialize NIS subsystem SYNOPSIS
ypinit -c [domainname] [-l server1,...,serverN] ypinit -m [domainname] [-l server1,...,serverN] ypinit -s master_server [domainname] [-l server1,...,serverN] DESCRIPTION
ypinit initializes the files and directories that are required for a NIS client or server. If domainname isn't specified, the default domain (as returned by domainname(1)) is used. The following options are available: -c Create a NIS client. Initializes /var/yp/binding/<domain>.ypservers to contain a list of ypservers for ypbind(8) to connect to. -l server1,...,serverN Set the list of client servers from the command line rather than prompting for them interactively. The format is a comma separated list of server names with no spaces. -m Create a master NIS server. Generates map data from local files (/etc/master.passwd, /etc/group, etc.). -s master_server Create a slave server. Downloads the maps from master_server, which should be the active master NIS server. To rebuild or refresh the maps for the NIS domain <domain>, change to the /var/yp/<domain> directory and run make. FILES
/var/yp master NIS directory; contains the template makefiles. /var/yp/<domain> directory to store NIS maps for <domain>. /var/yp/binding/<domain>.ypservers list of NIS servers to bind to. SEE ALSO
