List Objects and Tables in Nisplus

I have had a few search queries (metadata) via MyBlogLog analytics from readers who were searching for commands to show Nisplus objects and tables. Frankly speaking, I neglected posting much about this legacy name service (earlier on) because I did not really think it was worthwhile. But apparently, there seems to be a decent number of organizations still using it. At any rate, here is an example run.

Show the objects
# nisls
esofthub.com.:
org_dir
groups_dir

Show the tables
# nisls org_dir
org_dir.esofthub.com.:
passwd
group
auto_master
auto_home
bootparams
cred
ethers
hosts
ipnodes
mail_aliases
sendmailvars
netmasks
netgroup
networks
protocols
rpc
