47.Sh DESCRIPTION
48.Nm Mknetid
49processes the contents of the
50.Xr group 5 ,
51.Xr passwd 5 ,
52.Xr hosts 5
53and
54.Xr netid 5
55files into the format used to generate the
56.Pa netid.byname
57.Tn NIS
58map.
59This map is used to hold credential information for both users
1cd14d16 60and hosts in an operating system independent format.

61.Pp
62The
63.Nm
64command checks for duplicate occurrences of netids and filters
65them out.
66.Pp
67The
68.Nm
69command prints its results on the standard output.
70It is usually called
71only by
72.Pa /var/yp/Makefile
73when rebuilding the
74.Tn NIS
75maps.
76.Sh OPTIONS
77The
78.Nm
79command supports the following options:
80.Bl -tag -width indent
81.It Fl q
82Normally,
83.Nm
84prints a warning message when it encounters a duplicate netid.
85This flag turns on 'quiet' mode, allowing the warnings to be
86suppressed.
87Other error messages may still be generated.
88.It Fl g Ar group_file
89Specify the location of the group information
90file.
91The compiled-in default is
92.Pa /etc/group .
93.It Fl p Ar passwd_file
94Specify the location of the passwd information
95file.
96The compiled-in default is
97.Pa /etc/passwd .
98.It Fl h Ar hosts_file
99Specify the location of the hosts database
100file.
101The compiled-in default is
102.Pa /etc/hosts .
103.It Fl n Ar netid_file
104Specify the location of the netid information
105file.
106The compiled-in default is
107.Pa /etc/netid .
108Note that no error is generated if the netid database can't be
109found.
110The netid database is not likely to be present on most systems
111until
112.Tn Secure RPC
113support is added to
9bb2a92d 114.Dx .

115.It Fl d Ar domain
116By default, the
117.Nm
118command uses the system domainname when generating netid records.
119If
120the system domainname is not set, the domain must be specified on the
121command line with the
122.Fl d
123flag.
124If the domainname is set, the
125.Fl d
126flag may be used to override it.
