Solaris Naming Administration Guide

Namespace Identifier Context

The nsid (namespace identifier) type creates a context in which namespace identifiers can be bound.

For example, the command

# fncreate -t nsid org/sales/site/alameda.bldg-5/

creates the nsid context for the site alameda.bldg-5 and permits the creation of subcontexts such as service/. Continuing with this example, you could then execute the command

# fncreate -t service org/sales/site/alameda.bldg-5/service/

to create the service context for alameda.bldg-5.

The nsid context created is owned by the administrator who ran the fncreate command.
