dname - print RFS domain and network names
dname [ -adn ] [ -D domain ] [ -N netspec ]
This program is available with the RFS software installation option.
Refer to for information on how to install optional software.
dname prints or defines a host's Remote File Sharing (RFS) domain name
or the network used by RFS as transport provider.
When dname is used to change a domain name, the host's password is
removed. The administrator will be prompted for a new password the
next time RFS is started. See rfstart(8).
If dname is used with no options, it defaults to `dname -d'.
You cannot use the -D or -N options while RFS is running.
-a Print both the domain name and network name.
-d Print the domain name.
-n Print the network name.
Set the domain name for the host. domain must consist of no

ters (upper and lower case), digits, hyphens (-), and under-
scores (_). This option is restricted to the super-user.
Set the network specification used for RFS. netspec is the net-
work device name, relative to the /dev directory. For example,
the TCP transport device, /dev/tcp uses tcp. This option is
restricted to the super-user.
This domain name is not related to the Network Information Service

(YP). The functionality of the two remains the same; only the name has
