Turning off NIS YPbind on HP-UX 11 (hprx2660)

Turning off NIS YPbind on HP-UX 11 (hprx2660)

I have a HPRX-2660 running HP-UX 11 and while trying to boot it gets stuck at this part -

 Start NFS client subsystem .................................. OK

05.08 12:19:34  hprx2660  pid=1165   /usr/lib/netsvc/yp/ypbind
     NIS: server not responding for domain "DOMAIN" still trying

 

Is there a way to turn off NIS/ypbind through maybe the BIOS in order for the system to boot into the system properly? Once the system is booted into HP-UX, I can make the changes to the NIS setting.

 

Thanks!

Jeremy

In the /etc/rc.config.d directory there is a file called 'namesvrs'.

 

That file controls YP / NIS, among other things.

 

To turn off YP / NIS, make sure the following lines are set:

 

NIS_MASTER_SERVER=0
NIS_SLAVE_SERVER=0
NIS_CLIENT=0
NIS_DOMAIN=

 

Now YP / NIS should not start.

Hello Patrick,

 

Is there a way to edit that file through EFI Boot Manager settings?

No, there is not.

 

However, you can boot the server into single-user mode, mount all VG00 file systems and then edit that file.  Once done, reboot and come up normally.

Can't you hit control shift "[" a break (or control-\ or something like that) to get it to skip that step?

CTRL + \ did skip the NIS line and the system booted into the OS. Thank you everyone for your help!
