NAME

makedbm - create or dump a ypserv database file

SYNOPSIS

/usr/lib/yp/makedbm [ −a | −r ] [ −b ] [ −c ] [ −s ] [ −l ] [ −i YP_INPUT_NAME ] [ −o YP_OUTPUT_NAME ] [ −m YP_MASTER_NAME ] inputfile dbname
/usr/lib/yp/makedbm −u
dbname
/usr/lib/yp/makedbm −c
/usr/lib/yp/makedbm −-version

DESCRIPTION

makedbm takes the inputfile and converts it to a ypserv database file. In the moment, GDBM is used as database. Each line of the input file is converted to a single record. All characters up to the first TAB or SPACE are the key, and the rest of the line is the data. makedbm does not treat ‘#’ as a special character.

OPTIONS

−a

Special support for mail aliases. We couldn’t use sendmail for it, since sendmail uses db, but ypserv gdbm as database format.

−b

Insert the YP_INTERDOMAIN into the output. This key causes ypserv(8) to use DNS for host name and address lookups for hosts not found in the maps.

−c

send a YPPROC_CLEAR to the local ypserv(8). This causes ypserv to invalidate all cached entries.

−l

Convert the keys of the given map to lower case.

−i YP_INPUT_NAME

Create a special entry with the key YP_INPUT_NAME.

−m YP_MASTER_NAME

Create a special entry with the key YP_MASTER_NAME. If no master host name is specified, YP_MASTER_NAME will be set to the local host name.

−o YP_OUTPUT_NAME

Create a special entry with the key YP_OUTPUT_NAME.

−r

Handle ‘#’ as comment sign and remove the comment.

−s

Secure map. Accept connections from secure NIS networks only (reserved ports).

−u dbname

Dump a ypserv database file. Prints out the file in text format, one entry per line, with a single space separating keys from values.

−−no-limit-check

Don’t check for NIS key and data limit.
