Has anyone out there successfully configured a NIS+ server/NIS client

Our NIS+ network is working OK, but trying to initialise a machine as a
NIS client of our NIS-compatible NIS+ server generates the error:

   Can't enumerate maps from atlas. Please check that it is running.

I'm running around in circles with the documentation and can't see what's
wrong. Any ideas, please?
