I have a solaris server that I set up to be an NIS+ domain server.  Everything is working really nicely, but I need to update the passwd.org_dir entry.  I changed some of the contents of /etc/passwd (mostly login shells and home dirs) but those changes haven't shown up in the NIS+ exports.

How do I refresh the NIS+ versions?
