       netid - netname database


       The  netid  file  is  a	local  source  of  information	on mappings between netnames (see
       secure_rpc(3NSL)) and user ids or hostnames in the local domain. The  netid  file  can  be
       used in conjunction with, or instead of, the  network source: NIS or  NIS+. The	publickey
       entry in the  nsswitch.conf (see  nsswitch.conf(4)) file determines which of these sources
       will be queried by the system to translate netnames to local user ids or hostnames.

       Each entry in the netid file is a single line of the form:

	 netname uid:gid, gid, gid...


	 netname       0:hostname

       The  first  entry associates a local user id with a netname. The second entry associates a
       hostname with a netname.

       The  netid file field descriptions are as follows:

       netname	   The operating system independent network name for the user  or  host.  netname
		   has one of two formats.  The format used to specify a host is of the form:


		   where   hostname  is  the  name  of the host and  domain is the network domain

		   The format used to specify a user id is of the form:


		   where uid is the numerical id of the user and domain  is  the  network  domain

       uid	   The	numerical  id of the user (see	 passwd(4)). When specifying a host name,
		   uid is always zero.

       group	   The numerical id of the group the user belongs  to  (see   group(4)).  Several
		   groups, separated by commas, may be listed for a single uid.

       hostname    The local hostname (see  hosts(4)).

       Blank  lines are ignored.  Any part of a line to the right of a `#' symbol is treated as a
