nisd_resolv


NAME
     rpc.nisd_resolv, nisd_resolv - NIS+ service daemon

SYNOPSIS
     rpc.nisd_resolv [-v | -V]  [ -F [-C fd]] [-t xx] [-p yy]

DESCRIPTION
     rpc.nisd_resolv is an auxiliary process which  provides  DNS
     forwarding service for NIS hosts requests to both ypserv and
     rpc.nisd that are running in the NIS compatibility mode.  It
     is  generally  started  by invoking rpc.nisd(1M) with the -B
     option or ypserv(1M) with the -d option. Although it is  not
     recommended,  rpc.nisd_resolv  can  also be started indepen-
     dently with the following options.

     This command requires  that  the  /etc/resolv.conf  file  be
     setup  for communication with a DNS nameserver. The nslookup
     utility can be used  to  verify  communication  with  a  DNS
     nameserver. See resolv.conf(4) and nslookup(1M).

OPTIONS
     -F       Run in foreground.



     -C fd    Use fd for service xprt (from nisd).



     -v       Verbose. Send output to the syslog daemon.



     -V       Verbose. Send output to stdout.



     -t xx    Use transport xx.



     -p yy    Use transient program#  yy.

NOTES
     NIS+ might not  be  supported  in  future  releases  of  the
     Solaris  Operating  system.  Tools to aid the migration from
     NIS+ to LDAP are available in the current  Solaris  release.
