AUTHCONFIG(8)                                       AUTHCONFIG(8)

NAME
       authconfig  -  simple  interface  for  configuring  system
       authorization resources

SYNOPSIS
       authconfig  [--back]  [--test]  [--nostart]   [--enablenis
       [--nisdomain <domain>] [--nisserver <nisserver>] ] [--use-
       shadow [--enablemd5] ] [--kickstart]

DESCRIPTION
       authconfig  provides  a  simple  method   of   configuring
       /etc/sysconfig/network   to   handle   NIS,   as  well  as
       /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow, the  files  used  for  shadow
       password support.

       The authconfig window contains a Cancel button by default.
       If --back is specified at run time, a Back button is  pre-
       sented  instead. If --test is specified, authconfig can be
       run by  users  other  then  root,  and  any  configuration
       changes are not saved. If --nostart is specified (which is
       what the install program does), ypbind will not be started
       or  stopped  immediately  following program execution, but
       only enabled to start or stop at boot time. if --kickstart
       is  specified,  no  interactive screens will be seen.  The
       values the program will use will be those specified by the
       other options (--enablenis, --usehadow, etc.).

RETURN CODES
       authconfig  returns 0 on success, 2 on error, and 1 if the
       user cancelled the program (by using either the Cancel  or
       Back button).
