Resource management supports naming service project databases. The location where the project database is stored is defined in the /etc/nsswitch.conf file. By default, files is listed first, but the sources can be listed in any order.
project: files [nis] [ldap]
If more than one source for project information is listed, the nsswitch.conf file directs the routine to start searching for the information in the first source listed, and then search subsequent sources.
For more information about the /etc/nsswitch.conf file, see Chapter 2, The Name Service Switch (Overview), in System Administration Guide: Naming and Directory Services (DNS, NIS, and LDAP) and nsswitch.conf(4).
