       /usr/lib/yp/mknetid  [  -q  ]  [  -h hosts ] [ -p passwd ] [ -g group ] [ -d domain ] [ -n
       netid ]

       /usr/lib/yp/mknetid --version

DESCRIPTION
       mknetid generates the netid.byname NIS map from the contents of the  group(5),  passwd(5),
       hosts(5)  and  netid  files.  It checks for multiple entrys of netids and warn for them or
       filters them out. It is only called by /var/yp/Makefile when rebuilding the NIS map.

OPTIONS

	      duplicate netid entry.
