If certain conditions are met, any NIS client (machine, process, or user) can use FNS commands such as fncreate_fs or fncreate_printer to update the client's own contexts. This allows NIS clients to use FNS commands to update applications such as Printer Administrator, CDE Calendar Manager, Admin Tool and others.
For non-super-users to update their own contexts with FNS commands, the following conditions must be met:
A client user or machine is only allowed to update its own context.
The client must be authorized to perform the requested update.
