makedbm - create or dump a ypserv database file
/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 -c
- /usr/lib/yp/makedbm --version
- Special support for mail aliases. We couldn't use sendmail for it, since sendmail uses db, but ypserv gdbm as database format.
- 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.
- send a YPPROC_CLEAR to the local ypserv(8). This causes ypserv to invalidate all cached entries.
- Convert the keys of the given map to lower case.
- Create a special entry with the key YP_INPUT_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.
- Create a special entry with the key YP_OUTPUT_NAME.
- Handle `#' as comment sign and remove the comment.
- Secure map. Accept connections from secure NIS networks only (reserved ports).
- Dump a ypserv database file. Prints out the file in text format, one entry per line, with a single space separating keys from values.
- Don't check for NIS key and data limit.
