This optional parameter specifies how users are to be located in the NIS+ table. It is a list of field=value pairs. You can use any of the special characters. For more information, see Section 3.1. Special characters. In addition, you can use %0 for the user name. The default is [name=%0], which will find the user name in a standard NIS+ passwd table. You would only need to define this if you define your own NIS+ table to authenticate from.
