Extending Checks to NIS+ Tables: YPCHECK

The YPCHECK environment variable specifies whether ASET should also check system configuration file tables. YPCHECK is a Boolean variable. You can specify only true or false for YPCHECK. The default value is false, which disables NIS+ table checking.

To understand how this environment variable works, consider its effect on the passwd file. When set to false, ASET checks the local passwd file. When set to true, the task also checks the NIS+ passwd table for the domain of the system.

Note –

Although ASET automatically repairs the local files, ASET only reports potential problems in the NIS+ tables. ASET does not change the tables.
