Quatrième de couverture

What are NFS and NIS, and why do you need to manage them?

At many installations, the Network File system (NFS) is the "glue" that holds together large, diverse collections of computers. It provides transparent access to files on many different computers using many different operating systems, from personal computers to mainframes. Using NFS, you can access files across the network as if they were your own. However, NFS is usually a "black box" for most users and administrators. This book shows you what's in the box : how to plan a network file system, how to set it up, how to optimize its performance, how to plug security holes, and how to solve common problems like distributed mail management. It also discusses a number of special topics that you won't find elsewhere, including the NFS "automounter" (a facility for mounting and dismounting file systems as they are used) and the widely-used PC-NFS. A number of books provide either a theoretical basis for NFS or simplified discussions of how to set up your network. This is the only book we know that covers NFS in depth. It links theory and practice, showing you in detail how to get the most out of your network.

If you have worked with a network, you are well aware that the complexity of managing a network increases much faster than the number of nodes. This book shows you how to use the Network Information System (formerly called "Yellow Pages") to reduce the overhead of network administration. NIS provides a distributed database service that simplifies management of the most important administrative files, like the password file and the hosts file. Without NIS, making a simple administrative change requires modifying these files on every system in the network. Once NIS is running, you can modify a single set of files on a "master server," and propagate your changes to the rest of the network. This book also tells you how to use NIS to develop your own distributed database applications, ranging from the simple (like an automated phone list) to the complex (a stock quotation service that uses an NIS database of "licensed" users).

This book provides the only comprehensive discussion of NFS and NIS available anywhere. If you are managing a network of UNIX systems, or are thinking of setting up a UNIR network, you can't afford to overlook it. --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

A note from one of the co-authors 3 mars 2004
Par Michael R. Eisler - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Hello, My name is Mike Eisler, and I am one of the
co-authors of Managing NFS and NIS, Second Edition.
I'm writing this note to offer additional information
to potential readers.
At the time I submitted this note, most of the
customer reviews for this book referred to the first edition.
One of the reviews states that the book is focused on NFS
version 2 over UDP and the old style automounter.
Actually, you'll find the second edition of our book
is more modern. New topics in the second edition
include NFS version 3, NFS over TCP, modern autofs-based
automounters, Kerberos V5 authentication for NFS, NFS Access
Control Lists (ACLs), and client side fail over.
Another difference is that first edition of this book
used SunOS 4.x as a reference for examples. The second
edition uses Solaris 8.
The second edition provides information you won't find
in NFS product documentation, such as using tools like ethereal
to debug NFS problems. This book will give you the benefit of
insights from people who probably wrote some of the code for
your clients and servers. You may find (and I hope) that
it will save you the trouble reporting a problem to
your vendor's customer support line.
Thank you for considering our book.

Valuable tool for UNIX systems administrators 5 août 1997
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I was formerly the UNIX Systems Administrator of
large company where we had several variants of the UNIX operating system employed.

We had a very robust NIS and NFS environment with hundreds of NFS mount points and a dozen or more NIS maps.

The text and examples of this book enabled me to better maintain and update our environment. The practical guidelines for NIS map and application building provided concise information that was easily implemented.

In the area of NFS administration, the book provided valuable performance and tuning information, as well as diagnostic information to determine where problems could lie.

Additionally, I enjoyed the sections on Networking Fundamentals and NFS Design and operation. These were a nice refresher for knowledge previously attained.

While no one book can give all the answers to real world problems, this one at least shows practical application whereby a professional can apply the fundamentals to solve their own problems.

Overall, as a UNIX systems administrator, I found this book to be a "MUST HAVE" item for the professionals' bookshelf.

Excellent! Helps both beginners and experienced 15 février 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Does not leave out essential information. Gives useful examples where needed. Though not a beginner to Unix, I was not very familiar with NIS and NFS. I was very pleased to find a Unix book that gave me all I wanted to know in an understandable format. This is not always the case with the O'reilly books.

NFS, NIS and automounter, a great combonation! 19 novembre 2002
Par Doug M - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Anyone who has ever administered a network of at least 3-4 servers (if not more) will find individually updating accounts, software and such to be a burden. I found myself in this situation not too long ago, and then I picked up this book, and found the answers I was looking for.
Most Unix admins have heard of NFS and NIS but might not have considered using them together. This book gives a very thorough discussion each topic, how to set it up, how to deal with advanced issues, and how to troubleshoot. Admins will really develop an appreciation for how useful these tools can be, especially when used together.
Though LDAP is gaining prominence, a network utilizing NIS, NFS, and automounter is still a very nice network to administer. Even just learning NFS/automounter is time well spent because it is a service not likely to go away. I really felt this this book was worth the time and money because it really helps the intermediate to advanced admin better gain control of the network (instead of the network controlling him :). Definintely give this book a try. Enjoy!

The standard for NFS/NIS 23 mars 2001
Par Kip Perkins - Publié sur
Format: Broché
O'Reilly puts out so many well written books and the quality of the authors is usually the highest, and this book is no exception. Both of these subjects are covered in more than enough detail for anyone need to setup NFS, NIS, or both. It is written in such a way that you son't have to read straight through, but can use it as a reference for the information you need. I would recommend this book for anyone neededing a decent to thorough understanding of this topic.
