NIS (Network Information System) in the current name for what was once known as yp (Yellow Pages). The purpose of NIS is to allow many machines on a network to share configuration information, including password data and here are the links to configure NIS in Hpux

Hi,

NIS provides for single point administration of system configuration files.
NIS ensures consistency of files across the LAN.

Configuring NIS Servers and Clients
1.Create an NIS master server.
a. domainname [domain]
b. ypinit -m
c. vi /etc/rc.config.d/namesvrs
(Edit appropriate NIS variables.)
d. shutdown -r
2.Create an NIS slave server (optional).
a. domainname [domain]
b. ypinit -s [master_server]
c. vi /etc/rc.config.d/namesvrs
(Edit appropriate NIS variables.)
d. shutdown -r
3.Create the NIS clients.
a. vi /etc/rc.config.d/namesvrs
b. shutdown -r

Hi,

The Network Information Service Plus (NIS+), is the next generation of the Network Information Service (NIS). It is not an enhancement to NIS; it is a whole new service. Like NIS, it is a distributed database system that allows you to maintain commonly used configuration information on a master server and propagate the information to all the hosts in your network. This chapter explains how to configure and administer the servers and clients in an NIS+ namespace. It contains the following sections:
*
â Overview of NIS+â
*â Planning the NIS+ Namespaceâ
*â Setting Up the NIS+ Namespaceâ
*Administering NIS+â
*â Summary of NIS+ Commandsâ
Check below link , hope it will resolve ur problem ,
