NETGROUP_MKDB(8)        OpenBSD System Manager's Manual       NETGROUP_MKDB(8)

     netgroup_mkdb - generate the netgroup databases

     netgroup_mkdb [-o database] [file]

     Netgroup_mkdb creates db(3) style databases for the specified file. If no
     file is specified, then /etc/netgroup is used.  These databases are then
     installed into /etc/netgroup.db. The file must be in the correct format
     (see netgroup(5)).

     The options are as follows:

     -o database
             Put the output databases in the named file.

     The databases are used by the C library netgroup routines (see

     Netgroup_mkdb exits zero on success, non-zero on failure.

     /etc/netgroup.db          The current netgroup database
     /etc/netgroup.db.tmp      A temporary file
     /etc/netgroup             The current netgroup file

     Because netgroup_mkdb guarantees not to install a partial destination
     file it must build a temporary file in the same file system and if suc-
     cessful use rename(2) to install over the destination file.

     If netgroup_mkdb fails it will leave the previous version of the destina-
     tion file intact.
