|System Administration Guide: Naming and Directory Services (NIS+)|
The nisln command creates symbolic links between NIS+ objects such as tables and directories. All NIS+ administration commands accept the -L flag, which directs them to follow links between NIS+ objects.
To create a link to another object (table or directory), you must have modify rights to the source object; that is, the one that will point to the other object or entry.
To create a link, use:
nisln source target
Table 19-9 nisln Options
To create a link between objects such as tables and directories, specify both object names: first the source, and then the target. Do not link table entries.
nisln source-object target-object
