Uncomments the entry in the /etc/rc.nfs file for the ypbind daemon and starts the ypbind daemon to configure a client.
/usr/sbin/mkclient [ -I | -B | -N ] [ -S server]
The mkclient command uncomments the entry to the /etc/rc.nfs file to start the ypbind daemon to configure a client. The mkclient command starts the ypbind daemon by using the appropriate System Resource Controller (SRC) command.
You can use the File Systems application in Web-based System Manager (wsm) to change file system characteristics.
You could also use the System Management Interface Tool (SMIT) smit mkclient fast path to run this command.
|-I||Uncomments the entry for starting the ypbind daemon to the /etc/rc.nfs file. This entry causes the ypbind daemon to start during the next system restart.|
|-B||Uncomments the entry to the /etc/rc.nfs file and starts the ypbind daemon. This flag is the default.|
|-N||Causes the startsrc command to start the ypbind daemon. This flag does not affect the /etc/rc.nfs file.|
|-S||Specifies which NIS server to use instead of broadcasting for one. This option must be used when no NIS server exists on the networks directly connected to the client machine.|
To modify the /etc/rc.nfs file so that the ypbind daemon is started on the next system restart, enter:
|/var/yp/domainname directory||Contains the NIS maps for the NIS domain.|
|/etc/rc.nfs||Contains the startup script for the NFS and NIS daemons.|
