This configuration parameter specifies the interval, in seconds, that the adnisd daemon waits between connections to Active Directory. At each interval, the adnisd daemon connects to Active Directory, gets the latest NIS maps for the local computer’s zone, and updates its local NIS map data store.

The parameter value must be an integer equal to or greater than zero. If the value is zero, then the update interval is disabled and the local NIS map data store is not updated. For example, to set the interval for getting NIS maps to 1 hour:

nisd.update.interval: 3600

If this parameter is not defined in the configuration file, the default interval is 30 minutes (1800 seconds).
