nfsmapid — NFS user and group id mapping daemon




The nfsmapid daemon maps to and from NFS version 4 owner and owner_group identification attributes and local UID and GID numbers used by both the NFS version 4 client and server.

nfsmapid uses the passwd and group entries in the /etc/nsswitch.conf file to direct how it performs the mappings.

The nfsmapid daemon has no external, customer-accessible interfaces. System administrators, however, can configure nfsmapid in one of the following ways:

  • Specify the NFSMAPID_DOMAIN parameter in /etc/default/nfs.

  • Specify the _nfsv4idmapdomain DNS resource record.


This daemon might not exist in a future release of HP-UX.


nfsmapid was developed by Sun Microsystems, Inc.
