Manual page for ADD_SERVICES(8)

add_services - provide software installation services for any architecture

SYNOPSIS

/usr/etc/install/add_services

DESCRIPTION

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.
