Description michael.waite 1999-06-08 18:52:16 UTC
During installation of 6.0 (Alpha) we set it up to use
ypbind. We entered the domain name, server, and told it not
to broad cast but to use a specific server.
After a reboot ypbind failed to start cause it couldn't find
the yp domain. /etc/yp.conf is configured correctly but does
not appear to be used by the system.
We edited /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit and put in NISDOMAIN=drive.
This worked as a tollerable temporary solution to the
problem but should not be regarded as a "fix". We would like
to see the process that the man pages refer to be
implemented corectly.

Have you tried using authconfig? Or are you just editing by hand?

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-08-31 17:34:59 UTC
Closed, lack of input.

Make sure that NISDOMAIN is set in /etc/sysconfig/network - that
should be done by authconfig at installt time.
