NAME

aliasadm - manipulate the NIS+ aliases map

SYNOPSIS

aliasadm -a alias expansion [ options comments ] optional flags aliasadm -c alias expansion [ options comments ] [ optional flags ] aliasadm -d alias [ optional flags ] aliasadm -e alias [ optional flags ] aliasadm -l alias [ optional flags ] aliasadm -m alias [ optional flags ] aliasadm [ -I ] [ -D domainname ] [ -f filename ] [ -M mapname ]

DESCRIPTION

aliasadm makes changes to the alias map. The alias map is an NIS+ table object with four columns: alias The name of the alias as a null terminated string. expansion The value of the alias as it would appear in a send- mail /etc/aliases file. options A list of options applicable to this alias. The only option currently supported is CANON. With this option, if the user has requested an inverse alias lookup, and there is more than one alias with this expansion, this alias is given preference. comments An arbitrary string containing comments about this alias. The sendmail(1M) command reads this map in addition to the NIS aliases map and the local /etc/aliases database.

OPTIONS

-a Add an alias. -c Change an alias. -d Delete an alias.
