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

NAME
     mknetid -- a NIS filter program

SYNOPSIS
     mknetid [-q] [-d domain] [-p passwdfile] [-g groupfile] [-h hostfile]
             [-m netidfile]

DESCRIPTION
     mknetid is used to create a map named netid.byname.  The map consists of
     information from passwd(5), group(5) and hosts(5) eventually concatenated
     with a netid(5) file.

     The options are as follows:

     -d domain      NIS domain to use instead of the default domain.

     -g groupfile   Alternate group(5) file.  Default is /etc/group.

     -h hostfile    Alternate hosts(5) file.  Default is /etc/hosts.

     -m netidfile   Alternate netid(5) file.  Default is /etc/netid.

     -p passwdfile  Alternate passwd(5) file.  Default is /etc/passwd.

     -q             Keep quiet about multiple occurrences of a uid; ignore all
                    but the first.

FILES
     /etc/group
     /etc/hosts
     /etc/netid
     /etc/passwd
