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

Backing Up Specific NIS+ Directories

To back up specific NIS+ directory objects, you list those directories after the target backup directory.

For example, to backup the three org_dir directory objects for the root, sales, and manf domains to a /master1_bakup directory, you would run nisbackup on the master1 machine as follows:

master1# nisbackup /var/master1_bakup org_dir org_dir.sales org_dir.manf
