I upgraded from Solaris 2.4 to Solaris 2.5 beta. After the upgrade, NIS+
worked fine. But the next time I rebooted, the NIS+ servers are unreachable.
Somehow, items in /var/nis have been renamed! What was
voyager (directory), voyager.dict (file), and voyager.log (file)
data (directory), data.dict (file), and trans.log (file)
Also, there seems to be some new daemon: nscd. I cannot find any information
on it, but it goes through /etc/nsswitch.conf and looks to see if any of
password, group, or hosts information is gotten from NIS+. Then it sits in
the background and does ???
I have tried renaming the files in /var/nis, and booted with and without
nscd. Nothing works.
Can someone PLEASE shed some light on this?
