I suggest you refer Sun support to RFC2307, which is the RFC that defines 
the nisNetgroupTriple attribute.


The RFC quite clearly states that the definition is:

 ( nisSchema.1.14 NAME 'nisNetgroupTriple'
          DESC 'Netgroup triple'
          SYNTAX 'nisNetgroupTripleSyntax' )

It sounds like Sun has made a non-RFC compliant change to their schema 
definitions.  Of course, this is an experimental schema and subject to 
change.  However, the current working copy does not have the definition 
provided to you by Sun.
