When created by mknetid(8) there are three kind of records. The first type is information about which gids a uid has: unix.<uid>@<yp-domain> <uid>:<gid>,<gid> The second type has informations about hosts: unix.<hostname>@<yp-domain> 0:<hostname> The third type is records from a netid file other than the two types above.
