How to configure NIS client in HP-UX 11.31

Hi All,

The NIS server is running in HP-UX 11.00.

NIS server name - NISserver
NIS domain name - NISdomain


Now i have configured NIS client in HP-UX 11.31.

Please find my NIS configuraion details

-----------------------------------------------
# vi /etc/rc.config.d/namesvrs

NIS_MASTER_SERVER=0
NIS_SLAVE_SERVER=0
NIS_CLIENT="1"
NIS_DOMAIN="NISdomain"
MAX_NISCHECKS=2
EMULYP=""
YPSERV_OPTIONS=""
YPBIND_OPTIONS=""
YPPASSWDD_OPTIONS="/etc/passwd -m passwd PWFILE=/etc/passwd"
KEYSERV_OPTIONS=""
YPUPDATED_OPTIONS=""
YPXFRD_OPTIONS=""
RPC_NISD_OPTIONS="$EMULYP"
YPSET_ADDR=""
LONGNAMES_OPTIONS="group.bygid.dir group.bygid.pag group.byname.dir \
group.byname.pag hosts.byaddr.dir hosts.byaddr.pag \
hosts.byname.dir hosts.byname.pag networks.byaddr.dir \
networks.byaddr.pag networks.byname.dir networks.byname.pag \
passwd.byname.dir passwd.byname.pag passwd.byuid.dir \
passwd.byuid.pag protocols.byname.dir protocols.byname.pag \
protocols.bynumber.dir protocols.bynumber.pag \
rpc.bynumber.dir rpc.bynumber.pag services.byname.dir \
services.byname.pag ypservers.dir ypservers.pag \
ipnodes.byname.pag ipnodes.byname.dir ipnodes.byaddr.pag \
ipnodes.byaddr.dir"

SHORTNAMES_OPTIONS="group.bygi.dir group.bygi.pag group.byna.dir \
group.byna.pag hosts.byad.dir hosts.byad.pag \
hosts.byna.dir hosts.byna.pag netwk.byad.dir \
netwk.byad.pag netwk.byna.dir netwk.byna.pag \
passw.byna.dir passw.byna.pag passw.byui.dir \
passw.byui.pag proto.byna.dir proto.byna.pag \
proto.bynu.dir proto.bynu.pag rpc.bynu.dir \
rpc.bynu.pag servi.byna.dir servi.byna.pag \
ypservers.dir ypservers.pag ip.byna.pag ip.byna.dir \
ip.byad.pag ip.byad.dir"
WAIT_FOR_NIS_SERVER="TRUE"

----------------------------------------------

Then i have restarted the NIS client.

# /sbin/init.d/nis.client stop

# /sbin/init.d/nis.client start


But i am getting the below shown error.

#ypwhich
Domain NISdomain not bound on emdlaghpv01.

For your information:

1)I am able to ping NIS server.


My questions:

1)Do we need to mention the NIS server name in NIS client, if yes, in which file we have to mention?


Please help me to solve this issue.

You can if you want and you must if the NIS server (slave or master) is not in the same segment as the NIS client. You have to set the
YPBIN_OPTIONS="-ypset"
YPSET_ADDR="NIS server IP"
in the namesvrs file

That should be
YPBIND_OPTIONS="-ypset"
