To add an entry to the Makefile, do the following:
Add the name of the database to the all rule
Write the time rule
Add the rule for the database
To add these maps to the NIS database:
Modify the line that starts with the word all by adding the name(s) of the database you want to add:
all: passwd group hosts ethers networks rpc services protocols \ netgroup bootparams aliases netid netmasks \ auto_direct auto_home auto_direct.time auto_home.time
The order of the entries is not relevant, but the blank space at the beginning of the continuation lines must be a Tab, not spaces.
Add the following lines at the end of the Makefile:
auto_direct: auto_direct.time auto_home: auto_home.time
Add an entry for auto_direct.time in the middle of the file.
auto_direct.time: $(DIR)/auto_direct @(while read L; do echo $$L; done < $(DIR)/auto_direct $(CHKPIPE)) | \ (sed -e "/^#/d" -e "s/#.*$$//" -e "/^ *$$/d" $(CHKPIPE)) | \ $(MAKEDBM) - $(YPDBDIR)/$(DOM)/auto_direct; @touch auto_direct.time; @echo "updated auto_direct"; @if [ ! $(NOPUSH) ]; then $(YPPUSH) auto_direct; fi @if [ ! $(NOPUSH) ]; then echo "pushed auto_direct"; fi
CHKPIPE makes certain that the operations to the left of the pipe (|) are successfully completed before piping the results to next commands. If the operations to the left of the pipe do not successfully complete, the process is terminated with a "NIS make terminated" message.
The same procedure should be followed for all other automounter maps such as auto_home, or any other nondefault maps.
# make name
Where name is the name of the map you want to make. For example, auto_direct.
