System Administration Guide: Naming and Directory Services (NIS+)

ProcedureHow to Set Global Preferences for an Individual NIS+ Machine

  1. Run nisprefadm with the -G, and -C machine options.

    #nisprefadm -G -a -C machine servers (preferences)


    • -C machine identifies the machine the preferences will apply to. (Depending on the shell you are using, you may need to enclose machine in quotes.)

    • servers(preferences) are one or more servers with optional preference ranking numbers.

      For example, to replace the current preferences for the machine cygnus with replica7 and replica9 both with a default preference number of zero, type the following.

    polaris# nisprefadm -u -G -C cygnus replica7 replica9
