Need help with Interactive UNIX's YP

I need help with Interactive UNIX's YP.

I use the sysadm utillity to install the files and configure YP.

I want to set up the maschine to be a YP-client of a SUN SS2.  Somehow the
machine starts to transfer maps (?) and after it has transfered 1 or 2 maps it
hangs ...
After a while I get a message:
yp: can't find ypserver for "domain. ...."; still trying;

Urgh !

The question is,- has anyone got an idea what's wrong ?
If I want the machine to be a YP-client,- it shouldn't transfer the maps,- should
it ?

I'm running Interactive UNIX ver. 2.2.1 on a AST premium 486/33 T.
Interactive NFS ( don't remember version ) and YP vers. 2.1.

I would appreciate if someone could help me :-) !.

Thank You !.

1. NIS+ YP , NYS need Help I'm DYING!

I'm trying to recompilemy library to make it NYS aware... in order to install
 a run a NYS server off one of my machines.  So I got the source for my libc
4.6.27 and installed it, then went and got the NYS-0.27 service library.

I ran config from the libc directory that was created and answered yes to
the following question;

make nys aware library from nys-0.27?  

up to there everything's fine. the problem arises when I do a make on it..

after a couple minutes I get an error because it's trying to go in the dir
libc-nys to and cannot find the file: ... thing is.. that directory
was never created nor is this file in it... though I do know that this file
is present in the /usr/lib directory..... what should I do?!

1. edit the makefile?
2. move the in the directory and compile?!
 any  help appreciated!
