Administration of NIS logfiles consists of enabling and disabling NIS logging, displaying logfiles, and clearing logfiles.
To enable NIS logging, create the file /usr/adm/nislog.
To disable NIS logging, remove the file /usr/adm/nislog or move it to another location (that is, change its name).
To display NIS logfiles, use a text editor, such as vi(C), or use the more(C) command to view the contents of the logfile /usr/adm/nislog.
To clear the NIS logfile:
cat /dev/null > /usr/adm/nislog
