hostname_map (4)

Name

hostname_map - host alternative rpc.ttdbserverd(8)

Synopsis

hostname_map

Description

hostname_map(4)                ToolTalk Commands               hostname_map(4)



NAME
       hostname_map  -  tell  ToolTalk  clients  to use a per-host alternative
       rpc.ttdbserverd(8)

SYNOPSIS
       hostname_map

DESCRIPTION
       A  ToolTalk  hostname_map  tells  ToolTalk  clients  to  use  host  A's
       rpc.ttdbserverd(8)  as a proxy for host B.  In this way, ToolTalk data-
       bases can be created for filesystems exported from hosts (like host  B)
       that for whatever reason do not run rpc.ttdbserverd(8).

       The  hostname_map file is called "hostname_map" and resides in the same
       directories as the ToolTalk types databases; see  tt_type_comp(1).   If
       $TT_HOSTNAME_MAP is set, it is used in place of $HOME/.tt/hostname_map.

       ToolTalk  clients  read  the  hostname  maps  when  the ToolTalk client
       library is initialized in e.g.  tt_open(3).  ttsession reads the  host-
       name maps upon startup and rereads them if it receives signal USR2.

   Format rules
       The format rules for a hostname_map are:

       1. Any line beginning with a "#" or white-space and a "#" is a comment.

       2. Blank lines are comments.

       3. Words are delimited by white space.

       4.  The first word in a non-comment line is the host name from which to
          map.

       5. The second word in a non-comment line is the host name to  which  to
          map.

ENVIRONMENT
       TT_HOSTNAME_MAP
              If   $TT_HOSTNAME_MAP   is   set,   it   is  used  in  place  of
              $HOME/.tt/hostname_map.

       TTPATH A colon-separated list of directories in  which  to  seek  host-
              name_maps.  See tt_type_comp(1).

EXAMPLES
       This example maps "mainframe1" to "sparcstorage":

              # rpc.ttdbserverd cannot run on filesystems
              # exported from mainframe
              mainframe1 sparcstorage
