12Description: A NSS (Name Service Switch) module for AFS
9c2744ac 13 A Name Service Switch (NSS) plugin is a shared library used by glibc
14 to -- among other things -- translate between usernames and numeric
15 userids and between group names and numeric groupids.
16 .
17 The libnss-afs library is an NSS plugin which answers these queries
18 using the information stored in the AFS ptserver, avoiding the need to
19 duplicate (and update) this information in /etc/passwd or LDAP. The
20 library also synthesizes the name AfsPag-XXXX for the fake group ids
21 that are used to represent AFS PAGs.

27 module.
