Solaris Naming Administration Guide

Migrating From Files-Based Naming to NIS or NIS+

The fncopy command handles the FNS-related aspects of changing your underlying enterprise-level naming service from files to NIS or NIS+. This command copies and converts files-based FNS contexts to NIS or NIS+ based contexts.

The command syntax is:

fncopy [-i oldsvc -o newsvc] [-f filename] oldctx newctx

For example, to copy the contexts listed in the file /etc/host_list to the domain of an NIS+ naming service, you would enter:

fncopy -i files -o nisplus -f /etc/host_list //
