Description Chuck Berg 2005-05-31 17:15:43 UTC
authconfig generates a bad yp.conf it is missing and you specify multiple NIS

# rm -f /etc/yp.conf
]# /usr/sbin/authconfig --enablenis --nisdomain foo --nisserver nis1,nis2
--kickstart --nostart
# cat /etc/yp.conf
domain foo server nis1,nis2
# /usr/sbin/authconfig --enablenis --nisdomain foo --nisserver nis1,nis2
--kickstart --nostart
# cat /etc/yp.conf
domain foo server nis1
ypserver nis2

QE ack.  Easily tested and would be good to get fixed.

Comment 19 Shawn Starr 2006-10-17 20:12:45 UTC
Is that correct? Isn't the following configuration supposed to be done:

# /usr/sbin/authconfig --enablenis --nisdomain foo --nisserver 
nis1,nis2 --kickstart --nostart

'expected result' :

# cat /etc/yp.conf
domain foo server nis1
domain foo server nis2

If you want to have two NIS servers on one domain for example?
