Dear sun managers,
I have finished my NIS+ tool version 0.1alpha. It is not a replacement
for adminsuite. It is thougth to be a help in setting up and maintaining
a NIS+ domain.
These are the features:
-Create a root domain (mind the bug) and subdomains.
-Add and remove replica servers to and from NIS+ directories.
-Create your own tables and directories.
-Change the attributes of directories, tables and entries.
-Dump or load domains and all tables (even your own) to/from files.
-Add entries to any table using a generic interface.
-Add credentails for hosts and users.
-Change passwords of users.
You will need perl 5.003 and TK400.201 or higher to run nistool.
Please note that there might be a lot of bugs and that it might not be of help
to you if you don't know nothing about NIS+.
You may download nistool and a precompiled perl package for solaris from:
Your comments, suggestions and help is welcome.
If there is an interest in such a tool I will go on with the development.
