 udpublickey(1M)					     udpublickey(1M)




 NAME
      udpublickey - update the publickey database file and the NIS map

 SYNOPSIS
      udpublickey

    Remarks
      The Network Information Service (NIS) was formerly known as Yellow
      Pages (yp).  Although the name has changed, the functionality of the
      service remains the same.

 DESCRIPTION
      udpublickey is executed from the updaters(1M) makefile when either
      newkey or rpc.ypupdated updates the /etc/publickey database file.

      udpublickey receives the following information from newkey or
      rpc.ypupdated:

	   Requestor's name (a string)

	   Type of update

	   Number of bytes in key

	   Key

	   Number of bytes in data

	   Data

      After receiving this information, udpublickey attempts to update the
      publickey database file, /etc/publickey.

      If the update is successful, udpublickey makes the NIS map,
      publickey.byname.

      If the update is completely successful, udpublickey exits with a zero
      (0) status; otherwise udpublickey exits with a valid NIS error.

      This command should not be run interactively.
