NIS not sharing all maps

NIS not sharing all maps

Post by pin.. » Fri, 02 Dec 2005 17:39:44

I have a NIS server and using a client to test it.
Binding to the server works fine, but getting maps constitutes a
'ypcat group' gives me the correct information, while 'ypcat passwd'
returns nothing.
Setting the NIS server in debug mode I get the following:

Found: nis_xxtmp/passwd.byname (0)
ypdb_close() called
connect from
ypdb_close_all() called
ypdb_close_all() called
        ypdb_open("nis_xxtmp", "passwd.byname")
                ->Returning OK!
Opening: nis_xxtmp/passwd.byname (0) 80567d8
ypdb_close() called
         -> Exit from ypproc_all without sending data.
sig_child: got signal 17
children = 0

I also tried running a client on the NIS server with the same result.
Access rights to the files for group and passwd are identical.

Any help is greatly appreciated!



1. Need suggestions for passwd map when sharing NIS maps in multiple domains.

I have a need to create some NIS maps and modify other existing
maps. Unfortunately, political realities prevent me from modifying/adding to
the current NIS infrastructure. However, I do have the ability to create an
entirely new domain.

What I would like to do is be a slave server with respect to the all maps
except automount and netgroup maps.

The question is: How do I pass back passwd changes? I don't have super-user
remote execution ability on the NIS master. I think I am out of luck but I am
hoping someone else has had to deal with this and might have some ideas that I
can use.

Thanks in advance,
