USER_AGENTD(8C)                                                USER_AGENTD(8C)



NAME
       user_agentd - user agent daemon

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/etc/rpc.user_agentd

AVAILABILITY
       Available  only  on  Sun  386i systems running a SunOS 4.0.x release or
       earlier.  Not a SunOS 4.1 release feature.

DESCRIPTION
       rpc.user_agentd is the remote service used by snap(1) to create,  move,
       or  delete  home  directories,  and by the New User Accounts feature of
       logintool(8) to create new home directories.  The user_agent daemon  is
       normally invoked by inetd(8C), and runs on all non-diskless systems.

       When  creating a new home directory, the user_agent daemon executes the
       copy_home(8) script which resides in the home directory of the  primary
       group to which a new user will be added.

SEE ALSO
       snap(1), copy_home(8), inetd(8C), logintool(8)
