Sun Cluster Data Services Planning and Administration Guide for Solaris OS

Verifying the nsswitch.conf File Contents

The nsswitch.conf file is the configuration file for name-service lookups. This file determines the following information.

Some data services require that you direct “group” lookups to “files” first. For these data services, change the “group” line in the nsswitch.conf file so that the “files” entry is listed first. See the documentation for the data service that you plan to configure to determine whether you need to change the “group” line.

For additional information about how to configure the nsswitch.conf file for the Sun Cluster environment, see Planning the Sun Cluster Environment in Sun Cluster Software Installation Guide for Solaris OS.
