Name        : slapi-nis
Product     : Fedora 15
Version     : 0.23
Release     : 1.fc15
URL         : http://slapi-nis.fedorahosted.org/
Summary     : NIS Server and Schema Compatibility plugins for Directory Server
Description :
This package provides two plugins for Red Hat and 389 Directory Server.

The NIS Server plugin allows the directory server to act as a NIS server
for clients, dynamically generating and updating NIS maps according to
its configuration and the contents of the DIT, and serving the results to
clients using the NIS protocol as if it were an ordinary NIS server.

The Schema Compatibility plugin allows the directory server to provide an
alternate view of entries stored in part of the DIT, optionally adding,
dropping, or renaming attribute values, and optionally retrieving values
for attributes from multiple entries in the tree.

Update Information:

This update pulls in a new version of slapi-nis, which speeds up the generation of synthetic entries in the schema compatibility plugin, particularly entries which contain attributes with very large numbers of values.  After installing this update, you will need to restart the "dirsrv" service to load the new plugins.

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update slapi-nis' at the command line.
For more information, refer to "Managing Software with yum",
available at http://docs.fedoraproject.org/yum/.
