NAME
     nss - configuration file for initgroups lookup method

SYNOPSIS
     /etc/default/nss

DESCRIPTION
     The  /etc/default/nss  configuration   file   controls   the
     behavior  of the name service switch routines outside of the
     source database mappings provided by the  /etc/nsswitch.conf
     file.

     /etc/default/nss supports the following options:

     NETID_AUTHORITATIVE
           Changes the behavior of the name  service  lookups  to
           use  the netid table in response to the initgroups(3C)
           call. The netid table is provided by the LOCAL entries
           of  the  NIS+  cred.org_dir  table.  By default, init-
           groups()    uses     the     group     table.     When
           NETID_AUTHORITATIVE  is set to TRUE, initgroups() will
           use netid  as  the  source  for  supplementary  groups
           rather than the group table.

           The name service administrator must  ensure  that  the
           netid  table contains valid supplementary group infor-
           mation for users. Not all name services can  automati-
           cally  keep  the  members listed in the group table in
           sync with the netid table.
