defaultdomain - file which contains the NIS/YP domain name
is used by the boot scripts to setthe NIS/YP domain name for a system as returned by thegetdomainname
(2)function. The file contains one line with the name of the domain.
Unlike DNS hostnames and domain names, the NIS domain name iscase-sensitive! The NIS domain name must not be the same as theDNS domain name, but for some services like NIS+ it should be thesame.
Even if the domain name is often called NIS/YP domain name, it isalso used from other protocols, not only NIS/YP.
