This section describes where credential-related information is stored throughout the NIS+ namespace.
Credential-related information, such as public keys, is stored in many locations throughout the namespace. NIS+ updates this information periodically, depending on the time-to-live values of the objects that store it, but sometimes, between updates, it gets out of sync. As a result, you may find that operations that should work, do not. lists all the objects, tables, and files that store credential-related information and how to reset it.
Note - The NIS+ service is managed by the Service Management Facility (SMF). Enabling, disabling, or restarting NIS+ daemons such as rpc.nisd, keyserv, and nis_cachemgr, can be performed by using the svcadm command. See NIS+ and the Service Management Facility for more information about using SMF with NIS+. For an overview of SMF, refer to Chapter 18, Managing Services (Overview), in System Administration Guide: Basic Administration. Also refer to the svcadm(1M) and svcs(1) man pages for more details.
