41.Nm
42.Op Fl q
43.Op Fl g Ar group_file
44.Op Fl p Ar passwd_file
45.Op Fl h Ar hosts_file
46.Op Fl n Ar netid_file

48.Sh DESCRIPTION
49.Nm Mknetid
50processes the contents of the
51.Xr group 5 ,
52.Xr passwd 5 ,
53.Xr hosts 5
54and
55.Xr netid 5
56files into the format used to generate the
57.Pa netid.byname
58.Tn NIS
59map.
60This map is used to hold credential information for both users
1cd14d16 61and hosts in an operating system independent format.

62.Pp
63The
64.Nm
65command checks for duplicate occurrences of netids and filters
66them out.
67.Pp
68The
69.Nm
70command prints its results on the standard output.
71It is usually called
72only by
73.Pa /var/yp/Makefile
74when rebuilding the
75.Tn NIS
76maps.
77.Sh OPTIONS
78The
79.Nm
80command supports the following options:
81.Bl -tag -width indent
82.It Fl q
83Normally,
84.Nm
85prints a warning message when it encounters a duplicate netid.
86This flag turns on 'quiet' mode, allowing the warnings to be
87suppressed.
88Other error messages may still be generated.
89.It Fl g Ar group_file
90Specify the location of the group information
91file.
92The compiled-in default is
93.Pa /etc/group .
94.It Fl p Ar passwd_file
95Specify the location of the passwd information
96file.
97The compiled-in default is
98.Pa /etc/passwd .
99.It Fl h Ar hosts_file
100Specify the location of the hosts database
101file.
102The compiled-in default is
103.Pa /etc/hosts .
104.It Fl n Ar netid_file
105Specify the location of the netid information
106file.
107The compiled-in default is
108.Pa /etc/netid .
109Note that no error is generated if the netid database can't be
110found.
111The netid database is not likely to be present on most systems
112until
113.Tn Secure RPC
114support is added to
9bb2a92d 115.Dx .

116.It Fl d Ar domain
117By default, the
118.Nm
119command uses the system domainname when generating netid records.
120If
121the system domainname is not set, the domain must be specified on the
122command line with the
123.Fl d
124flag.
125If the domainname is set, the
126.Fl d
127flag may be used to override it.
