This program is available with the RFS software installation option. Refer to [a manual with the abbreviation INSTALL] for information on how to install optional software.
rfpasswd updates the Remote File Sharing (RFS) authentication password for a host; processing of the new password follows the same criteria as passwd.1 The updated password is registered at the domain name server (/usr/nserve/auth.info/domain/passwd) and replaces the password stored at the local host (/usr/nserve/loc.passwd/file).
This command is restricted to the super-user.
Note: if you change your host password, make sure that hosts that validate your password are notified of this change. To receive the new password, hosts must obtain a copy of the domain/passwd file from the domain's primary name server. If this is not done, attempts to mount remote resources may fail.
If any of the following is true an error message will be sent to the standard error:
Also, RFS must be running on your host and your domain's primary name server. A new password cannot be logged if a secondary is acting as the domain name server.
