svcsetup - set up the svc.conf file
The svcsetup script modifies the svc.conf file on your system. The svc.conf
file must be modified whenever you configure or remove a database distribu-
tion service, such as the Network Information Service (NIS, formerly YP) or
BIND (for the hosts database only). Changes take effect immediately.
Modifications to the svc.conf file can also be made via an editor.
When you run svcsetup, do the following:
1. Choose the m option from the Configuration menu.
2. Enter the numbers, separated by a space, from the Change Menu that
correspond to the databases whose entries you want to modify.
3. Indicate, for each database that you selected in step 2, the order in
which you want the services queried. Selections 3, 4, 5, and 6 are
valid for the <interactive>(hosts) database only.
The recommended configuration is that you have local as the first entry for
all databases, except possibly hosts.
The Security Integration Architecture (SIA) is now responsible for setting
the service order for the passwd and group databases. The passwd and group
entry in the svc.conf file remain for backwards compatibility only. The
SECLEVEL entry also remains for backwards compatibility only; SIA now con-
figures system security.
Only NIS can serve the netgroup database, even if local is specified for
the netgroup entry.
You must be superuser to run svcsetup.
