[2] Configure as a NIS Client
root@www:~#
vi /etc/yp.conf
#
# yp.conf       Configuration file for the ypbind process. You can define
#               NIS servers manually here if they can't be found by
#               broadcasting on the local net (which is the default).
#
#               See the manual page of ypbind for the syntax of this file.
#
# IMPORTANT:    For the "ypserver", use IP addresses, or make sure that
#               the host is in /etc/hosts. This file is only interpreted
#               once, and if DNS isn't reachable yet the ypserver cannot
#               be resolved and ypbind won't ever bind to the server.

# ypserver ypserver.network.com
# add at the last: (domain name) (server) (NIS server's hostname)

domain srv.world server dlp.srv.world
