Specify disallowed NIS mapping files for NIS daemon

Specify the name of the NIS maps you want to prevent the NIS service from using in response to NIS clients. This group policy enables you to exclude specific maps rather than explicitly specifying the maps you want to make available. For example, if you have a large number of automount maps or other network information that you want to make available to NIS clients but do not want to use agentless authentication, you can use this parameter to exclude the passwd and group maps but respond to automount or netgroup requests.

Enter a list of valid NIS map names, separated by spaces. Note that this policy excludes the named map and all derived maps; for example:

group passwd

If you do not enable this group policy, all NIS maps found in Active Directory are retrieved and available for service. This group policy overrides the setting of the Specify allowed NIS mapping files for NIS daemon.

This group policy modifies the nisd.exclude.maps setting in the agent configuration file.
