Set maximum number of mapping files allowed for NIS daemon

Specify the number of alternate sets of NIS maps to retain. A new set of NIS maps is normally created when adnisd switches to an alternate domain controller. Keeping these alternate sets of maps allows Centrify DirectControl Network Information Service to more efficiently switch between domain controllers.

You must specify an integer value greater than zero. The default value is 2 map sets.

This group policy modifies the nisd.maps.max setting in the Centrify DirectControl configuration file.
