NIS

Introduction

Network Information Service (NIS) is a name service for centralized management. The appliance can act as a NIS client for users and groups, so that:

Note that UIDs and GIDs from 0-99 inclusive are reserved by the operating system vendor for use in future applications. Their use by end system users or vendors of layered products is not supported and may cause security related issues with future applications.

Properties

Property
Description
Domain
NIS domain to use
Server(s): Search using broadcast
The appliance will send a NIS broadcast to locate NIS servers for that domain
Server(s): Use listed servers
NIS server hostnames or IP addresses

Changing services properties is documented in the BUI and CLI sections of Services.

The appliance will connect to the first NIS server listed or found using broadcast, and switch to the next if it stops responding.

Logs

Log
Description
network-nis-client:default
NIS client service log
appliance-kit-nsswitch:default
Log of the appliance name service, through which NIS queries are made
system-identity:domain
Log of the appliance domainname configurator

To view service logs, refer to the Logs section from Services.

Tasks

The following are example tasks. See the BUI and CLI sections for how these tasks apply to each interface method.

NIS Tasks

Adding an appliance administrator from NIS

If you have an existing user in NIS who would like to login using their NIS credentials and administer the appliance:

  1. Go to Configuration->Services->NIS
  2. Set the NIS domain and server properties.
  3. Apply/commit the configuration.
  4. Go to Configuration->Users
  5. Add user with type "directory"
  6. Set username to their NIS username
  7. Continue with the instructions in Users for adding authorizations to this user.
