ADD_SERVICES(8)             System Manager's Manual            ADD_SERVICES(8)



NAME
       add_services - provide software installation services for any architec-
       ture

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/etc/install/add_services

DESCRIPTION
       add_services is a menu-based program to setup  a  system  as  a  server
       and/or  to  add  additional  software  categories or other architecture
       releases.  It is used to provide support to diskless clients,  dataless
       clients, or just to act as a file server.  add_services can only be run
       by the super-user.

       add_services  updates  the  /etc/exports  file  (see   exports(5)   and
       exportfs(8))  to  export  the  necessary  file systems to become a file
       server.  After running add_services, the  system  administrator  should
       verify  this file to make sure that the new services have been exported
       to the correct groups.

FILES
       /etc/hosts          hosts database, host must be in this database or in
                           the Network Information Service (NIS) hosts map
       /etc/exports        database  of exported file systems, service related
                           directories must be exported
       /tftpboot           add_services sets up this  directory  in  order  to
                           provide boot service to clients

NOTES
       The  Network Information Service (NIS) was formerly known as Sun Yellow
       Pages (YP).  The functionality of the two remains the  same;  only  the
       name has changed.
