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

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

      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.

      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

      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.

    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.


      Continuously sync starting at midnight.

	   /usr/lbin/ttsyncd -i0

      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.

    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.

      ttsyncd was developed by Hewlett Packard.
