SYNOPSIS

nsscache [global options] command [command options]

DESCRIPTION

nsscache synchronises a local NSS cache against a remote data source. This approach allows the administrator to separate the network from the NSS lookup codepath, improving speed and reliability of name services.

OPTIONS

Global options alter general program behaviour:
-v, --verbose
  enable verbose output
-d, --debug
  enable debugging output
-c FILE, --config-file=FILE
  read configuration from FILE
--version
  show program’s version number and exit
-h, --help show this help message and exit

COMMANDS

    update

Performs an update of the configured caches from the configured sources.
-f, --full force a full update from the data source
--force force the update, overriding any safeguards and checks that would otherwise prevent the update from occurring. e.g. normally empty results from the data source are ignored as bogus -- this option will instruct the program to ignore its intuition and use the empty map
-m MAPS, --map=MAPS
  NSS map to operate on, can be supplied multiple times
-h, --help show help for the update command

    verify

Perform verification of the built caches and validation of the system NSS configuration.
-m MAPS, --map=MAPS
  NSS map to operate on, can be supplied multiple times
-h, --help show help for the verify command

    status

Show the last update time of each configured cache, and other metrics, optionally in a machine-readable format.
-m MAPS, --map=MAPS
  NSS map to operate on, can be supplied multiple times
-h, --help show help for the status command

    repair

Verify that the configuration is correct, that the source is reachable, then perform a full synchronisation of the cache.
