NIS problem

Bonjour,

I got the same mess than ossama_sultan. (with RedHat 7.1)

Trying further I run ypbind in debug mode and got this :
        ping host `my.server.ip.address` , domain 'MyDomainName'
        host `my.server.ip.adresse` doesn't answer
The network is runing and I can ping all the machines.
`my.server.ip.address` do the job for all the other clients.

I thought ypserv on `my.server.ip.address` was too old and I run ypserv
on the machine with the new system. ypbind can't bind my domainname no
more.

I am very sad :-(

Check to make sure that it isn't a firewall which is stopping you from
connecting to your NIS master server or that the server doesn't have any
hidden firewall rules either.  You might like to flush your input chain and
make sure that there are no entries in there and see whether a ypbind can be
successful.  Additionally, make sure that the ypserver hostname is specified
in the appropriate /etc/yp.conf file and that the IP address of this server
can be found in the /etc/hosts file.

If possible, try putting your ypbind into debug mode and see whether or not
you can identify the problem.

See ya

1. NIS+ problems. NIS transition kit better ?

The subject says it all. I have enough of this buggy NIS+
code. This morning, it cleared my aliases table when I added
an entry ! Now I cannot modify anything. It says "perm. denied"
even if it worked yesterday.

#FLAME ON
I'm sure even the developpers are affraid to look into their
source files.
#FLAME OFF

Now did you get better experience with the NIS transition kit
for Solaris 2.x ? I have heard a new version shoule be out soon.

Is it more stable than NIS ?
