After we changed the ip/netmask/geteway addresses of our machines,
some strange things appeared. The network is working now (ftp,
telnet, ping, netscape ...), but the problem is that the client
machines cannot locate the ypserver.
We have three Redhat 6.2 machines, one serves as server and the
other two as clients, and the NIS version is 2. The ypserver
is ok on the server side, but the client machine can never find
the ypserver, even though I used the ip address directly for the
ypserver in file /etc/yp.conf. Every time one logins to a
client machine, there will be a warning message like
"YPBINDPROC_DOMAIN: Domain not bound".
Other files being tried include /etc/nsswitch.conf /etc/hosts
/etc/hosts.conf and /etc/sysconfig/network ...
The domain name had been set using "domainname xxx". I even
delete all the staff, and create a new NIS domain and update
the corresponding system, the problem still remains.
I appreciate your help very much!
