DESCRIPTION

Files in netid format are rare. One lives in the YP map netid.byname. The format is rather simple. Each row consists of two items: a key and a value. When created by mknetid(8) there are three types of records.

The first type is information about which GIDs a UID has:


.Sm off unix.<uid@<yp-domain>>
.Sm on
.Sm off <uid:<gid,<gid>>>
.Sm on

The second type contains information about hosts:


.Sm off unix.<hostname@<yp-domain>>
.Sm on
.Sm off 0:<hostname>
.Sm on

The third type refers to records from a netid file other than the two types above.

FILES

/etc/netid for lines not generated automatically by mknetid(8)

EXAMPLES

A configuration file might look like the following:
unix.10714@kaka 10714:400,10
unix.jodie@kaka 0:jodie

SEE ALSO

mknetid(8), yp(8)
