rpc.ypupdated, ypupdated - server for changing NIS informa- tion


/usr/lib/netsvc/yp/rpc.ypupdated [ -is ]


ypupdated is a daemon that updates information in the Net- work Information Service (NIS). ypupdated consults the updaters(4) file in the /var/yp directory to determine which NIS maps should be updated and how to change them. By default, the daemon requires the most secure method of authentication available to it, either DES (secure) or UNIX (insecure).


-i Accept RPC calls with the insecure AUTH_UNIX creden- tials. This allows programmatic updating of the NIS maps in all networks. -s Accept only calls authenticated using the secure RPC mechanism (AUTH_DES authentication). This disables programmatic updating of the NIS maps unless the net- work supports these calls.


/var/yp/updaters Configuration file for rpc.updated command.
