Thank You

Re: Docs about NIS server

Yes, it is possible.

Configuration synchronization can be accomplished by using NIS. NIS configuration and management is relatively easy when compared to configuring a MC/ServiceGuard cluster. It is recommended that NIS servers be located on different clusters to prevent a single-point of failure.
