NAME
     netid -- NIS network credential file

DESCRIPTION
     Files in netid format are rare. One lives in the NIS map netid.byname.
     The format is rather simple. Each row consists of two items, a key and a
     value. When created by mknetid(8) there are three kind of records.

     The first type is information about which gids a uid has:

     unix.<uid>@<yp-domain> <uid>:<gid>,<gid>

     The second type has informations about hosts:

     unix.<hostname>@<yp-domain> 0:<hostname>

     The third type is records from a netid file other than the two types
     above.

FILES
     /etc/netid  A file for lines not generated automatically by mknetid(8).

EXAMPLES
     A configuration file might appear as follows:

     unix.10714@kaka 10714:400,10
     unix.jodie@kaka 0:jodie
