 NAME
      nisserver - set up NIS+ servers.

 SYNOPSIS
      /usr/lib/nis/nisserver -r [-x] [-f] [-v] [-Y] [-d NIS+_domain]
	   [-g NIS+_groupname] [-l network_passwd]

      /usr/lib/nis/nisserver -M [-x] [-f] [-v] [-Y] -d NIS+_domain
	   [-g NIS+_groupname] [-h NIS+_server_host]

      /usr/lib/nis/nisserver -R [-x] [-f] [-v] [-Y] [-d NIS+_domain]
	   [-h NIS+_server_host]

 DESCRIPTION
      The nisserver shell script can be used to set up a root master, non-
      root master, and replica NIS+ servers with level 2 security (DES).

      When setting up a new domain, this script creates the NIS+ directories
      (including groups_dir and org_dir) and system table objects for the
      domain specified.	 It does not populate the tables.  You will need to
      use nispopulate(1M) to populate the tables.

      Use the first SYNOPSIS (-r) to set up a root master server. You must
      be logged in as super-user on the server machine.

      Use the second SYNOPSIS (-M) to set up a non-root master server for
      the specified domain. You must be logged in as an NIS+ principal on a
      NIS+ machine and have create permission to the parent directory of the
      domain that you are setting up. The new non-root master server machine
      must already be an NIS+ client (see nisclient(1M)) and have the
      rpc.nisd daemon running (see rpc.nisd(1M)).

      Use the third SYNOPSIS (-R) to set up a replica server for both root
      and non-root domains.  You must be logged in as an NIS+ principal on
      an NIS+ machine and have create permission to the parent directory of
      the domain that you are replicating. The new replica server machine
      must already be an NIS+ client (see nisclient(1M)) and have the
      rpc.nisd daemon running (see rpc.nisd(1M)).

    Options
      -d NIS+_domain	    specifies the name for the NIS+ domain.  The
			    default is your local domain.

      -f		    forces the NIS+ server setup without prompting
			    for confirmation.

      -g NIS+_groupname	    specifies the NIS+ group name for the new
			    domain.  This option is not valid with -R
			    option.  The default group is admin.domain.

      -h NIS+_server_host   specifies the hostname for the NIS+ server.	 It
			    must be a valid host in the local domain.  Use a
			    fully qualified hostname (for example,
			    hostx.xyz.hp.com.) to specify a host outside of
			    your local domain. This option is ONLY used for
			    setting up non-root master or replica servers.
			    The default for non-root master server setup is
			    to use the same list of servers as the parent
			    domain. The default for replica server setup is
			    the local hostname.

      -l network_password   specifies the network password with which to
			    create the credentials for the root master
			    server.  This option is ONLY used for master
			    root server setup (-roption).  If this option is
			    not specified, the script will prompt you for
			    the login password.

      -r		    sets up the server as a root master server.	 Use
			    the -R option to set up a root replica server.

      -v		    runs the script in verbose mode.

      -x		    turns the "echo" mode on.  The script just
			    prints the commands that it would have executed.
			    Note that the commands are not actually
			    executed.  The default is off.

      -M		    sets up the specified host as a master server.
			    Make sure that rpc.nisd(1M) is running on the
			    new master server before this command is
			    executed.

      -R		    sets up the specified host as a replica server.
			    Make sure that rpc.nisd(1M) is running on the
			    new replica server.

      -Y		    sets up an NIS+ server with NIS-compatibility
			    mode.  The default is to set up the server
			    without NIS-compatibility mode.

 EXAMPLES
      To set up a root master server for domain hp.com. :

	   root_server# /usr/lib/nis/nisserver -r -d hp.com.

      For the following examples make sure that the new servers are NIS+
      clients and rpc.nisd is running on these hosts before executing
      nisserver.
