RPC/NIS Problems

RPC/NIS Problems

Post by John Gentili » Wed, 17 May 1995 04:00:00



Has any one had any experience configuring Linux to be a NIS
Client of SVR4 (AT&T)

I tried it and failed.

The AT&T ypserv install went fine. RPCInfo shown both ypbind and
ypserv.

Linux first had problems saying that yp server not responding and
now say's RPC program not registered.

The ypbind version on the AT&T unix is 3. Does linux support
version 3 or does anyone know if AT&T Unix'es support version2 ?

Is AT&T's version of RPC correct for Linux ?

Thanks in advance

1. rpc.nispasswdd[394]: rpc.nispasswd Error in accessing NIS+ cold start file... is NIS+ installed?.

We get this error message in /var/adm/messages file:

  rpc.nispasswdd[394]: rpc.nispasswd Error in accessing NIS+ cold start
file... is NIS+ installed?.

 We are running Solaris 7.

 We are not running NIS/YP.  I do not see any nis/yp processes running.
 However, I see following when I ran 'rpcinfo -p'.

 rpcinfo -p | grep nis
    100300    3   udp  32772  nisd
    100300    3   tcp  32771  nisd

 I see following in /etc/init.d/rpc file:
   if [ -d /var/nis/data -o -d /var/nis/$hostname ]; then
                        /usr/sbin/rpc.nisd $EMULYP
                        echo " rpc.nisd \c"
                        /usr/sbin/rpc.nispasswdd
   fi

I assume this is why nis processes are being registered with 'rpc'.
/var/nis/data is a blank directory and /var/nis/$hostname directory
does not exist.

I believe I need to move /var/nis/data to /var/nis/data.old and it will
take care of this issue.

Am I correct here or I need to be fixing it different way ?

Thank you all for your help.
