fncheck - check for consistency between FNS data and NIS+
fncheck [-r] [-s] [-u] [-t type] [domain_name]
fncheck is used for checking for inconsistencies between FNS
username or hostname contexts and the contents of the
corresponding NIS+ passwd.org_dir or hosts.org_dir tables,
respectively, in the NIS+ domain domain_name. If
domain_name is omitted, the domain name of the current
machine is used. By default (in the absense of the -r and
-s options), the following inconsistencies are displayed:
o items that appear only in the FNS context but do not
appear in the NIS+ table,
o items that appear only in the NIS+ table but do not
appear in the FNS context.
-r Display only items that appear in the FNS context but
do not appear in the corresponding NIS+ table.
-s Display items that appear in the NIS+ table but do not
appear in the corresponding FNS context.
-u Update the FNS context based on information in the
corresponding NIS+ table. If the -r option is used,
items that appear only in the FNS context are removed
from the FNS context. If the -s option is used, items
that appear only in the NIS+ table are added to the
FNS context. If neither -r or -s are specified, items
are added and removed from the FNS context to make it
consistent with the corresponding NIS+ table.
Specify the type of context to check. type can be
either hostname or username. If this option is omit-
ted, both hostname and username contexts are checked.
If type is hostname, the FNS hostname context is
checked against the NIS+ hosts.org_dir table. If type
is username, the FNS username context is checked
against the NIS+ passwd.org_dir table.
Although fncheck can be used to add users and hosts to the
username and hostname contexts as new users and hosts are
added to NIS+, that is not its intended purpose. fncheck is
an expensive operation because it makes complete comparisons
of the NIS+ table and the corresponding FNS context. When a
user or host is added or removed from NIS+ using admintool
(see admintool(1M)), it automatically updates the appropri-
ate FNS contexts.
