NAME

fnsypd - update FNS context on an NIS master server

SYNOPSIS

/usr/sbin/fnsypd

DESCRIPTION

The fnsypd daemon is a Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service that accepts requests from NIS clients to update and modify Federated Naming Service (FNS) contexts. This daemon runs on an NIS master server with FNS on top of it. The fnsypd daemon requires the Secure Key Infrastructure (SKI) mechanism for authentication. The SKI mechanism is part of the SUNWski package. If SUNWski is not installed, authenti- cation cannot be performed and users will receive "permis- sion denied" error messages. The SUNWski man pages are located at /opt/SUNWski/man. fnsypd enables users and hosts to modify only their respec- tive FNS contexts. Organization, site, hostname and user- name contexts cannot be modified using fnsypd.

EXIT STATUS

The following exit values are returned: 0 Successful completion. 1 An error occurred.
