       svcsetup - set up the svc.conf file



       This  file  is  obsolete,  except for statically-built applications and
       sendmail, if the Name Service Switch is in  use.	 See  nsswitch.conf(5)
       for more information.

       The  svcsetup  script  modifies	the  svc.conf file on your system. The
       svc.conf file must be modified whenever you configure or remove a data‐
       base  distribution  service,  such  as  the Network Information Service
       (NIS, formerly YP) or BIND (for the hosts database only). Changes  take
       effect immediately.

       Modifications to the svc.conf file can also be made via an editor.

       When  you  run svcsetup, do the following: Choose the m option from the
       Configuration menu.  Enter the numbers, separated by a space, from  the
       Change  Menu that correspond to the databases whose entries you want to
       modify.	Indicate, for each database that you selected in step  2,  the
       order in which you want the services queried. Selections 3, 4, 5, and 6
       are valid for the <interactive>(hosts) database only.

       The recommended configuration is that you have local as the first entry
       for all databases, except possibly hosts.

       The Security Integration Architecture (SIA) is now responsible for set‐
       ting the service order for the passwd and group databases.  The	passwd
       and group entry in the svc.conf file remain for backwards compatibility
       only. The SECLEVEL entry also remains for backwards compatibility only;
       SIA now configures system security.

       Only  NIS  can  serve the netgroup database, even if local is specified
       for the netgroup entry.

       You must be superuser to run svcsetup.
