Using NIS map command line administration utility

The nisedit command line utility allows you to manage NIS maps stored in Active Directory as RFC 2307 objects. nisedit is located at /opt/quest/bin/nisedit and has been designed to be script- and automation-friendly.

To run the nisedit utility, specify one or more general options and then specify a specific sub-command which may have further options and arguments. The following table contains a complete list of supported nisedit commands and a brief description of each.

Table 17: nisedit commands
Command Description
add Add RFC 2307 NIS maps and/or entries to Active Directory.
delete Delete RFC 2307 NIS map or entries out of Active Directory.
dump Output RFC 2307 NIS maps and entries from Active Directory.
modify Modify an RFC 2307 NIS map or entries in Active Directory.
list List all RFC 2307 NIS map names from Active Directory.
sync Synchronize changes to RFC 2307 NIS maps in Active Directory.

The group, passwd, and netid maps are provided directly from the vasd cache that is populated straight from Active Directory user and group objects, and cannot be edited with nisedit.
