Replace NIS+

Replace NIS+

        I don't want this to start a mad discussion but has anyone ever
considered getting rid of NIS+. What I would like to know is if one
intended to replace NIS+, is there an alternative.

        Quite honestly I am pissed of with the password ageing, entry
permissions and all the other bugs/features...

1. replaced nis client -> had to reboot nis master?


I recently replaced a sparc5 with an ultra1/140 using the same name
and ip address.  I had the new machine all set so the swap only took
about 5 minutes.  But the new machine appeared to hang at the ypbind
stage of booting.  I ended up rebooting the nis master and then rebooting
the client again.

Should I have expected this behavior -- and if so,  how do I restart
the nis master safely without rebooting?  I tried kill -1 on ypserv
and /etc/init.d/rpc??? stop/starts but it needed a reboot.
