NIS+ replica server on 4.1.x: does it finally work?

NIS+ replica server on 4.1.x: does it finally work?

Post by Nicolas Rouquet » Sat, 11 Mar 1995 18:01:23



About 6 months ago, we tried to switch from NIS to NIS+ in an
environment where each desktop (4.1.3 & 5.3 at the time) has a local
slave NIS server. The 5.x desktops ran fine but we had to switch back
to NIS because we couldn't boot a machine with a NIS+ replica server.
We tried hard without success...

Since it took a significant amount of time and effort to try this,
we would like to get some reassurances of success before trying
once again with 4.1.3/4.1.4 and 2.4 which bears the question:

is anyone using NIS+ replica servers on 4.1.3 or 4.1.4 machines?

If you are such a lucky person, would you mind letting us know
which patches (if any) are needed to do this?
