NAME
       makedbm - create or dump a ypserv database file

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/lib64/yp/makedbm  [	 -a  |	-r  ] [ -b ] [ -c ] [ -s ] [ -l ] [ -i
       YP_INPUT_NAME ] [ -o YP_OUTPUT_NAME ] [ -m YP_MASTER_NAME  ]  inputfile
       dbname
       /usr/lib64/yp/makedbm -u dbname
       /usr/lib64/yp/makedbm -c
       /usr/lib64/yp/makedbm --version

DESCRIPTION
       makedbm	takes the inputfile and converts it to a ypserv database file.
       In the moment, GDBM is used as database. Each line of the input file is
       converted  to  a	 single	 record. All characters up to the first TAB or
       SPACE are the key, and the rest of the line is the data.	 makedbm  does
       not treat '#' as a special character.

OPTIONS
       -a     Special  support	for mail aliases. We couldn't use sendmail for
	      it, since sendmail uses db, but ypserv gdbm as database  format.

       -b     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.

       -c     send  a YPPROC_CLEAR to the local ypserv(8).  This causes ypserv
	      to invalidate all cached entries.

       -l     Convert the keys of the given map to lower case.

       -i YP_INPUT_NAME
	      Create a special entry with the key YP_INPUT_NAME.

       -m YP_MASTER_NAME
	      Create a special entry with the key YP_MASTER_NAME.  If no  mas-
	      ter  host	 name  is specified, YP_MASTER_NAME will be set to the
	      local host name.

       -o YP_OUTPUT_NAME
	      Create a special entry with the key YP_OUTPUT_NAME.

       -r     Handle '#' as comment sign and remove the comment.

       -s     Secure map. Accept connections from  secure  NIS	networks  only
	      (reserved ports).

       -u dbname
	      Dump a ypserv database file. Prints out the file in text format,
	      one entry per line, with a single	 space	separating  keys  from
	      values.

       --no-limit-check
	      Don't check for NIS key and data limit.
