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

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

Post by MG » Sat, 22 May 1999 04:00:00



Hello,

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
'machine1.subdomain.masterdomain.ac.uk' and
'machine1.masterdomain.ac.uk' which is not what we want.

TIA,

Matt

1. NIS & NIS+ in same sub-domain

I've a quick question related to our Solaris 1.X -> 2.X transition.

Solaris 2.1 (we're actually going to 2.3) Transition Guide p. 93 says:

  "For a network, there are three main migration paths from NIS to the
  NIS+ name service:...

  [iii.] Have new clients use NIS+ and old clients use NIS, without
  using compatibility mode at all."

This seems to imply that I can leave our old 4.1.3 NIS server
running while running an NIS+ server on another machine in the same
sub-domain. Is this true? Is there a catch?

Thanks,
