Transfer information from NIS+ tables to NIS maps on a Solaris 1 master server.
Log in to the NIS+ server.
Transfer the NIS+ tables in to output files.
Transfer the contents of the output files to the NIS maps.
To perform this task, you must have read access to each table whose contents you transfer.
The maps must already have been built on the NIS server.
This example uses the server named dualserver.

dualserver% /usr/lib/nis/nisaddent -d -t table tabletype > filename
The -d option transfers the contents of table to filename, converting the contents back to standard /etc file format.
dualserver# cd /var/yp dualserver# make
