  18 .LP
  19 Use the \fBypmap2src\fR utility to convert standard NIS maps to approximations
  20 of the equivalent NIS source files. This utility functions like the reverse of
  21 \fBypmake\fR(1M).
  22 .sp
  23 .LP
  24 The primary use for \fBypmap2src\fR is to convert from a NIS server that uses
  25 the NIS to LDAP(N2L) transition mechanism, which does not use NIS source files,
  26 to traditional NIS, where source files are required. The \fBypmap2src\fR
  27 utility is also used by NIS administrators who wish to discover the contents of
  28 NIS maps for which the sources are not available.
  29 .sp
  30 .LP
  31 Generally, this operation is not necessary. More often, administrators will
  32 switch from traditional NIS to N2L in anticipation of the eventual transition
  33 to LDAP naming. When this switch is made, authoritative information is moved
  34 into the LDAP DIT, and the NIS sources have no further role. N2L supports NIS
  35 clients until such time as they can be converted to LDAP, and the NIS service
  36 suspended.
  37 .sp
  38 .LP
  39 The \fBypmap2src\fR utility does not guarantee that the files that are
  40 generated are identical to the original NIS source files. Some information
  41 might have been thrown away by \fBypmake\fR and cannot be recovered. N2L also
  42 might have updated the maps to reflect changes made by LDAP clients. It is
  43 essential that the sources generated are checked to confirm no problems have
  44 occurred.
  45 .sp
  46 .LP
  47 Per entry comment fields, from existing source files, are not merged into
  48 source files generated by \fBypmap2src\fR. If a user wishes N2L to maintain
  49 comment information, then the \fBNISLDAPmapping\fR configuration file should be
  50 modified so that the comment fields are mapped into  LDAP. This will ensure
  51 that the comments are visible to native LDAP clients and present in the N2L map
  52 files.
  53 .sp
  54 .LP
  55 When \fBypmap2src\fR is run, it will take up-to-date comments from the map file
  56 and insert them into the NIS source file generated.
  57 .SS "Handling Custom Maps"

  58 .LP
  59 \fBypmap2src\fR only knows about the standard NIS maps and standard source to
  60 map conversion. If an advanced user has changed these, that is, the user has
  61 modified the NIS makefile, the equivalent changes must also be made to the
  62 \fBypmap2src\fR script.

  64 .LP
  65 \fBypmap2src\fR supports the following options:
  66 .sp
  67 .ne 2
  68 .na
  69 \fB\fB-c\fR\fR
  70 .ad
  71 .RS 18n
  72 Specifies that \fIcustom-map-name\fR should be converted to a source
  73 file by running \fBmakedbm\fR \fB-u\fR on it. This is a short cut so that
  74 simple custom maps can be handled without editing \fBypmap2src\fR.
  75 .RE
  77 .sp
  78 .ne 2
  79 .na
  80 \fB\fB-d\fR \fIdomain-name\fR\fR
  81 .ad
  82 .RS 18n
  83  Specifies the domain to convert. The \fIdomain-name\fR can be a fully
  84 qualified file path, such as \fB/var/yp/a.b.c\fR, or just a domain name,
  85 a.b.c\fB\fR. In the latter case, \fBypmaptosrc\fR looks in \fB/var/yp\fR for
  86 the domain directory.
  87 .RE
  89 .sp
  90 .ne 2
  91 .na
  92 \fB\fB-o\fR \fIdest\fR\fR
  93 .ad
  94 .RS 18n
  95  Specifies the destination directory for the converted files. A directory other
  96 than \fB/etc\fR should be specified. The maps generated are copied to the
  97 correct location, \fB/etc\fR, \fB/etc/security\fR or other source directory, as
  98 appropriate.
  99 .RE
 101 .sp
 102 .ne 2
 103 .na
 104 \fB\fB-t\fR\fR
 105 .ad
 106 .RS 18n
 107 Specifies that traditional NIS maps, without N2L's \fBLDAP_\fR prefix, should
 108 be converted. By default, maps with the \fBLDAP_\fR prefix are converted.
 109 .RE

 112 .LP
 113 \fBypmap2src\fR supports the following operands:
 114 .sp
 115 .ne 2
 116 .na
 117 \fB\fIsource-file\fR\fR
 118 .ad
 119 .RS 15n
 120 Lists the standard source files to convert. If this option is not given, then
 121 all the standard source files, plus any custom files specified by the \fB-c\fR
 122 option, are converted.
