Resource management supports the name service project database. The location where the project database is stored is defined in /etc/nsswitch.conf. 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. The routine then searches subsequent databases.
For more information on /etc/nsswitch.conf, see “The Name Service Switch (Overview)” in System Administration Guide: Naming and Directory Services (DNS, NIS, and LDAP) and nsswitch.conf(4).
