NETID(5)                  OpenBSD Programmer's Manual                 NETID(5)

NAME
     netid - YP network credential file

DESCRIPTION
     Files in netid format are rare.  One lives in the YP 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
     types of records.

     The first type is information about which GIDs a UID has:

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

     The second type contains information about hosts:

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

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

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

EXAMPLES
     A configuration file might look like the following:

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

SEE ALSO
     mknetid(8), yp(8)
