NIS using a different domain than the default domain

NIS using a different domain than the default domain

Post by Sander de Boe » Fri, 30 Jun 2000 04:00:00

I'm looking for a way to set the NIS domain to another domain than the
default domain in /etc/defaultdomain. Is there a way to tell NIS about this?

Thanks in advance,

1. NIS+ Sub-Domain client: should it be a member of the master domain AND sub-domain?


Our NIS+ sub-domain clients are still appearing as members of the
master domain. Is this correct? I thought when the sub-domain was
created the clients on it would no longer belong to the master domain.
This means sub-domain clients can be addressed as either
'' and
'' which is not what we want.
