Mapping FNS Contexts to NIS+ Objects

FNS contexts are stored as NIS+ objects. All contexts associated with an organization are stored under the FNS ctx_dir directory of the associated NIS+ domain. The ctx_dir directory resides at the same level as the org_dir directory of the same domain. In other words, when running in conjunction with FNS, for every NIS+ domain or subdomain, there are corresponding org_dir, groups_dir and ctx_dir directory objects.

Use the -v option for the fnlookup or fnlist command to see the detailed description of references. The internal name field displays the name of the corresponding NIS+ object.
