NETID(5) MidnightBSD File Formats Manual NETID(5)

NAME

netid — YP network credential file

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:

unix.〈

uid 〉@〈yp-domain〉 〈
uid
〉:〈
gid
〉,〈gid

The second type contains information about hosts:

unix.〈

hostname 〉@〈yp-domain〉 0:〈hostname

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
