sys-unconfig - undo a system's configuration
sys-unconfig packs up a machine to make it ready to be configured
It restores a systems's configuration to an "as-manufactured" state. A
system's configuration consists of hostname, Network Information Ser-
vice (NIS) domain name, timezone and IP address.
sys-unconfig does the following:
o Restores the default /etc/hosts file.
o Removes the default hostname in /etc/hostname.??[0-9].
o Removes the default domainname in /etc/defaultdomain.
o Removes the default /usr/lib/zoneinfo/localtime file.
o Disables the Network Information Service (NIS) if the NIS
service was requested.
When sys-unconfig is finished, it will perform a system shutdown.
sys-unconfig is potentially a dangerous utility and can only be run by
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.
