NAME

  svc.conf - Database service selection	configuration file

DESCRIPTION

  The /etc/svc.conf file is a mandatory	system file that allows	you to select
  the desired services on a per	database basis.	 The default /etc/svc.conf
  file has local as the	service	selected for each database.  This file must
  be modified when adding or removing a	naming service,	such as	the Network
  Information Service or BIND.	The valid services are local, yp, and bind.
  Modifications	to the /etc/svc.conf file can be made with an editor or	the
  /usr/sbin/svcsetup command for database service selection.  Changes take
  effect immediately.

				     Note

       The recommended configuration is	that you have local as the first
       entry for all databases.


RESTRICTIONS

  White	space is allowed only after commas or newlines.

  You must have	local as the first entry for the passwd	and hosts databases.

  You must have	yp as the entry	for the	netgroup database.

EXAMPLES

  The following	is a sample /etc/svc.conf file:

       aliases=yp
       group=local,yp
       hosts=local,bind,yp
       netgroup=yp
       networks=local,yp
       passwd=local
       protocols=local,yp
       rpc=local,yp
       services=local
