Setting Up NIS+ Tables

This chapter provides step-by-step instructions for using the NIS+ command set to populate NIS+ tables on a master server from /etc files or NIS maps, how to transfer information back from NIS+ tables to NIS maps, how to limit access to the passwd column of the passwd table.

Note - NIS+ might not be supported in a future release. Tools to aid the migration from NIS+ to LDAP are available as of the Solaris 9 release. For more information, see System Administration Guide: Naming and Directory Services (DNS, NIS, and LDAP) and visit NIS+ End-of-Feature (EOF) Announcement FAQ.
