For many networked systems, a single Secure RPC domain will suffice.
Administrators are notified of the domain name,
and they use the
command to establish that name as the Secure RPC domain name for their machine.
For example, to set the a machine's domain name to research:
For networked systems having multiple domains, the process is the same, except that two or more different domains will be in use in the network.
