       passwd_export - Creates local password and group files

       passwd_export  [-d  dir_name] [-m max_entries] [-h[elp]] [-n] [-s] [-v]

       The name of the directory to store the password, group,	and  organiza‐
       tion  files  created by passwd_export.  If you do not enter a directory
       name, the files are stored in the /etc directory.  Display help	infor‐
       mation.	Ignore passwd_override and group_override file entries.	 With‐
       out this option, passwd_export applies the override entries  from  both
       files  to  the  local password and group files it creates.  The maximum
       number of entries that can be stored in	the  local  files.   Sort  the
       local  password	and  group file entries by UNIX number.	 If you do not
       specify this option, the entries are in order  as  they	are  retrieved
       from  the  registry.   Run  in verbose mode.  Do not create entries for
       users with OMIT as their encrypted password in the passwd_override  and
       group_override  files.  See the passwd_override and group_override ref‐
       erence pages for further details about omitting users.

       The dceshared/bin/passwd_export	command	 creates  local	 password  and
       group  files from registry data.	 These files are used when the network
       registry is unavailable and by programs	that  use  the	original  UNIX
       passwd  and  group  interfaces  instead	of  the	 DCE  interfaces.  Use
       passwd_export to keep these local files consistent  with	 the  registry

       When passwd_export runs, it makes backup copies of the current password
       and group files, if they exist.	The  files  are	 named,	 respectively,
       passwd.bak and group.bak.

       By  default,  the  backups  are stored and the new files created in the
       /etc directory.	You can override the default by supplying a  directory
       name with the -d option.

   Running passwd_export
       The   passwd_export   command   is   commonly  run  with	 an  entry  in
       /usr/lib/crontab.  For example, to update the  files  every  hour,  the
       entry  is  0 * * * * dceshared/bin/passwd_export In large network envi‐
       ronments, it is a good idea to stagger the times passwd_export is run.

       Commands: rgy_edit(1m)
