We are running Solaris 2.4 w/ many patches. More times than not when a 2.4
client(NIS) is rebooted the binding process to a 4.1.3 slave can take from
anywhere between 1 minute to several hours, or we bind right a way. We never
loose the binding once it is established. We are running 100mb/CDDI with a FDDI
backbone. No other symptoms occur once machine is bound. So I tend to believe
it is not a router issue(CISCO). The CDDI cards are Cresendo(CISCO) and the
CDDI hubs are DEC.
Anyone out there seen this?
p.s. if you would like to know which patches send me e-mail and I will forward
them to you.
