Is that anything like a _problem_?

When you do what?

Huh? Is that when the problem is there, or
when it's not there?

Anything interesting in the system log files?
Is NIS the only network service with a
problem? (When it fails, do other things
("ping", Telnet, FTP, ...) work?)

One NIS master server (only)?

Re: NIS issue

This error occurs when I run ypcat group command.Other network services are working fine when this issue is faced.ypwhich successfully returns the NIS server even when we face this issue.
