NETID(5)		    BSD	File Formats Manual		      NETID(5)

NAME
     netid -- YP network credential file

DESCRIPTION
     Files in netid format are rare.  One lives	in the YP map netid.byname.
     The format	is rather simple.  Each	row consists of	two items: a key and a
     value.  When created by mknetid(8)	there are three	types of records.

     The first type is information about which GIDs a UID has:

     unix.<uid>@<yp-domain> <uid>:<gid>,<gid>

     The second	type contains information about	hosts:

     unix.<hostname>@<yp-domain> 0:<hostname>

     The third type refers to records from a netid file	other than the two
     types above.

FILES
     /etc/netid	 for lines not generated automatically by mknetid(8)

EXAMPLES
     A configuration file might	look like the following:

     unix.10714@kaka 10714:400,10
     unix.jodie@kaka 0:jodie

SEE ALSO
     mknetid(8), yp(8)
