add_services is a menu-based program to setup a system as a server and/or to add additional software categories or other architecture releases. It is used to provide support to diskless clients, dataless clients, or just to act as a file server. add_services can only be run by the super-user.
add_services updates the /etc/exports file (see exports.5 and exportfs.8 to export the necessary file systems to become a file server. After running add_services, the system administrator should verify this file to make sure that the new services have been exported to the correct groups.

The Network Information Service (NIS) was formerly known as Sun Yellow Pages (YP). The functionality of the two remains the same; only the name has changed.
