Network Information Service

Network Information Service (NIS) is a name service for centralized directory management. The Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance can act as an NIS client for users and groups so that NIS users can log in to FTP and HTTP/WebDAV. NIS users can also be granted privileges for appliance administration. The appliance supplements NIS information with its own privilege settings.
