builddbm - users.db compiler


builddbm [ -hvx ] [ -d directory ] [ -l file ]


YARD RADIUS builddbm is a program that builds the GDBM format of the `users' file, which could be used in conjunction with the radiusd `-b' flag. The users file should resides in the standard configuration directory, as selected at configuration time. It should be run as root. Be also sure to set mode 600 for the `users' file as well as the resulting `users.db'.


-d directory
Changes the source `users' file directory. The default value is /usr/conf. The destination directory of `users.db' is the same one.
Prints out usage of the command.
Prints version information.
-l file
Changes the logging file.
Prints (or should do so) debugging messages while compiling.

The same of the previous one as compiled in by builddbm in GDBM format. It needs to be compiled again every time you make changes to the previous one and without restarting radiusd .
This read-only file contains the codes and formats for standard and vendor RADIUS protocol attributes and values along with their human readable representation. It is subject to change, due to new access server supports. It is a plain text file with a pletora of comments in it.
