All databases are built from scratch, either from information available to the program at runtime, or from the ASCII data base files in FC/etcF. These files are listed below under FILES.
An NIS database on a slave server is set up by copying an existing database from a running server. The master_name argument should be the hostname of an NIS server (either the master server for all the maps, or a server on which the data base is up-to-date and stable).
