       mknetid - generate data for netid map

SYNOPSIS

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

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

       -q     This  flag  turns on ’quiet’ mode, don’t print a warning message
              when finding an duplicate netid entry.

       -h hosts
              The -h flag can be used to specify the use of another hosts file
              than the default /etc/hosts.

       -p passwd
              The  -p  flag  can  be used to specify the use of another passwd
              file than the default /etc/passwd.

       -g group
              The -g flag can be used to specify the use of another group file
              than the default /etc/group.

       -n netid
              The -n flag can be used to specify the use of another netid file
              than the default /etc/netid.

       -d domain
              The mknetid command uses the system domainname by default. If it
              is  not  set  or  you  whish to override it, you must use the -d
              parameter.
