11. Creating and Updating NIS maps

11.1. Creating new NIS maps

The initial NIS maps will be created by running

    % /usr/lib/yp/ypinit -m

This is done when setting up the NIS master server for the first time. For more information about this, read Section 9. If you wish to add new maps to your server or remove old one, you need to edit the /var/yp/Makefile and change the all: rule. Add or remove the name of the rule, which generates the map.

If you delete a map, you also have to remove the corresponding files.

After this change, you only need to run

    % make -C /var/yp

and the maps should be created.
