The Network File System (NFS) and the Network Information
Service (NIS) provide
mechanisms for solving "consistent and transparent" access problems. The NFS and
protocols were developed by Sun Microsystems and are now licensed to hundreds of
and universities, not to mention dozens of implementations from the published
NFS and NFS
specifications. NIS centralizes commonly replicated configuration files, such as
file, on a single host. It eliminates duplicate copies of user and system
information and allows
the system administrator to make changes from one place. NFS makes remote
appear to be local, as if they were on disks attached to the local host. With
NFS, all machines
can share a single set of files, eliminating duplicate copies of files on
different machines in the
network. Using NFS and NIS together greatly simplifies the management of various
combinations of machines, users, and filesystems.
