 NAME
      ttsyncd - Daemon to maintain the nis+ password table in sync with the
      nis+ trusted table.

 SYNOPSIS
      /usr/lbin/ttsyncd [-D] [-v] [-t synchour] [-i interval]

 DESCRIPTION
      ttsyncd checks that each login name in the nis+ password (passwd)
      table appears in the nis+ trusted table.	It will create a user entry
      in the trusted table for every user that exists in the password table
      and NOT in the trusted table.  Each nis+ user can potentially log in
      to an HP trusted system; thus, ttsyncd aids trusted systems by
      creating an entry in the trusted table before the nis+ user logs in.
      In turn, the system administrator can modify global security
      attributes for each nis+ user before they log in to a trusted system
      that is part of the nis+ namespace.

    Options
      ttsyncd recognizes the following options:

	   -D	   Used for debugging ttsyncd.	All output will go to the
		   screen as well as the syslog.

	   -v	   Verbose mode used for debugging ttsyncd.

	   -t	   Initial daily sync time. The time is in military hour (0
		   through 23).	 For example,

		   -t10	     sync time is 10 a.m

		   -t23	     sync time is 11 p.m

		   -t0	     midnight

		   default   sync once next sync at midnight

	   -i	   Sync interval. This value is allowed from 0 through 23.
		   This is only in hours. For example,

		   -i0	     sync continuously (see note below)

		   -i4	     sync every 4 hours

		   -i20	     sync every 20 hours

		   default   sync 24 hours

 DIAGNOSTICS
      If it is desired to administer Trusted mode centrally within a nis+
      namespace, ttsyncd should be running on every HP nis+ server.

      Furthermore, ttsyncd can be started automatically at boot time by
      setting TTSYNCD=1 in /etc/rc.config.d/comsec.  Additionally, ttsyncd
      will run only on a nis+ server (root or master) and only if nis+ is up
      and running.

 EXAMPLES
    Command format
      Initial sync time at midnight and sync every 2 hours.

	   /usr/lbin/ttsyncd -t0 -i2

      Initial sync time at 10 a.m and sync every 2 hours.

	   /usr/lbin/ttsyncd -t10 -i2

      Initial sync time at midnight and sync every 4 hours.

	   /usr/lbin/ttsyncd -i4

      Sync only at midnight.

	   /usr/lbin/ttsyncd

      Continuously sync starting at midnight.

	   /usr/lbin/ttsyncd -i0

 NOTE
      If interval -i0 is given, ttsyncd will keep checking the passwd table
      for change. If there is any change in the passwd table then it will do
      a sync. This is useful when trusted table needs to be sync'ed as soon
      passwd table is modified. The drawback is it will consume CPU time for
      checking the passwd table.

 DEPENDENCIES
    NIS+ (Network Information Name Service)
      ttsyncd requires NIS+ to be configured and running.  It should be run
      only on an nis+ server.  Moreover, ttsyncd will self-terminate if the
      password table does not exist.
