NIS Setup Help: "Can't bind to server which serves this domain"

NIS Setup Help: "Can't bind to server which serves this domain"

Post by D. Bu » Fri, 09 Jul 2004 11:38:23

I have NIS server (ypserv-2.12.1.tar.gz) and NIS client
(ypbind-mt-1.17.2.tar.gz)  installed on two RH9 machines.  The install
went fine, but when I try to use it I get the following error from
either the server or the client:

# ypcat passwd
No such map passwd.byname. Reason: Can't bind to server which serves
this domain

I have found others that have had this error, but those suggestions
have not helped me so far.  Here is some of my setup info:

<clientAndServer># domainname

<clientAndServer># more yp.conf
domain poe broadcast

<server>]# ls /var/yp/poe
group.bygid      netgroup.byuser     rpc.byname
group.byname     netid.byname        rpc.bynumber
hosts.byaddr     passwd.byname       services.byname
hosts.byname     passwd.byuid        services.byservicename
mail.aliases     protocols.byname    ypservers
netgroup         protocols.bynumber
netgroup.byhost  publickey.byname

No changes have been made to /etc/ypserv.conf or /var/yp/Makefile  on
either the client or the server.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.



1. Help: What's " Domain not bound"?

After setting up my internet connection and finally make it working. But
when I used " route" or "netstat -r"  to check my PPP connection, I got
the message as following:
Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use
Iface    *      UH    0      0        0
YPBINDPROC_DOMAIN: Domain not bound     UG    0      0        0
eth0     *          U     0      0        0
eth0       *            U     0      0        0
default         UG    0      0
Is anything wrong on my modem or NIC setting? I have a NIC card and
hasn't been setup to connect to my other PC(windows2000) yet.

Thanks for help
