NETGROUP_MKDB(8)        NetBSD System Manager's Manual        NETGROUP_MKDB(8)

NAME
     netgroup_mkdb -- generate the netgroup database

SYNOPSIS
     netgroup_mkdb [-o database] [file]

DESCRIPTION
     netgroup_mkdb creates a db(3) database for the specified file.  If no
     file is specified, then /etc/netgroup is used.  This database is
     installed into /var/db/netgroup.db.  The file must be in the correct for-
     mat (see netgroup(5)).

     The options are as follows:

     -o database
             Put the output databases in the named file.

     The databases are used by the C library netgroup routines (see
     getnetgrent(3)).

     netgroup_mkdb exits zero on success, non-zero on failure.

FILES
     /var/db/netgroup.db       The current netgroup database
     /var/db/netgroup.db.tmp   A temporary file
     /etc/netgroup             The current netgroup file

SEE ALSO
     db(3), getnetgrent(3), netgroup(5)

BUGS
     Because netgroup_mkdb guarantees not to install a partial destination
     file it must build a temporary file in the same file system and if suc-
     cessful use rename(2) to install over the destination file.

     If netgroup_mkdb fails it will leave the previous version of the destina-
     tion file intact.
