1. RFC or other docs for NIS (aka YP)?
I've been having problems with HP-UX 9.07's NIS. It seems that
it will bind to any domain regardless of what the domainname is
set to. HP is trying to tell me that this is how it's supposed to
work, but I don't believe them. If that were so, why even have a
domainname? Also, I have tried it with a Sun (rebooting it on a network
with multiple NIS domains when the Sun's sole NIS server was down)
and it refused to bind to any ypserv except one serving its domain.
There's a workaround, sort of, using ypset, but if the NIS server
is down during a reboot of the hP-UX machine, it will bind to a
wrong domain even with this workaround.
I would like to be able to make HP admit that this is a problem, but
I don't know where to find the specifications for how NIS is supposed
to behave in this circumstance. I only have the behaviour of my
Suns (sunos 4.1.4) to go by. Is there an RFC, or something else
which defines NIS? Where can I find this?
