Re: NIS configuraction

there are few possibilities for this, anyway first we can try to change namesvrs, change below three parameter as listed.

NIS_DOMAIN="NIS domain name"
YPBIND_OPTIONS="-ypsetme"
YPSET_ADDR="ip address of your NIS master server"


make sure you are entring correct parameter here,
and then restart /sbin/init.d/nis.client
if still there any error, post the error,

let me know how it goes, thanks,

Re: NIS configuraction

It's given following error


rpcbind already started, using pid: 855
domainname NIS_MASTES
starting up the Network Information Service
starting up the ypserv daemon
FAILURE CODE: 1
starting up the ypxfrd daemon
FAILURE CODE: 1

when i check ruining process of yp
in that ypsver& ypxfrd is not started.

Re: NIS configuraction

besides the namesvrs file, you should set the NIS domain with the domainname command like this:

#domainname

after that, please restart the nis server:

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

after that, you should be connected either to the master or to the slave, verify it:

#ypwhich

if the NIS servers are in another subnet then you should set the IP Adress of a master/slave in the namesvrs file:

YPSET_ADDR="YPBIND_OPTIONS="-ypset"

let me know if it solved your problem ;)
