Configure NIS Server
2010/06/10
  Build NIS Server in order to share users' accounts among local networks.
[root@master ~]#
yum -y install ypserv


[root@master ~]#
ypdomainname srv.world
 
# set NIS domain name

[root@master ~]#
vi /etc/sysconfig/network


NETWORKING=yes
HOSTNAME=master.srv.world
NISDOMAIN=srv.world
# add at the bottom


[root@master ~]#
vi /var/yp/Makefile

[root@master ~]#
vi /var/yp/securenets


host
127.0.0.1

255.255.255.0
10.0.0.0


[root@master ~]#
/etc/rc.d/init.d/rpcbind start

Starting rpcbind:
[  OK  ]

[root@master ~]#
/etc/rc.d/init.d/ypserv start

Starting YP server services:
[  OK  ]

[root@master ~]#
/etc/rc.d/init.d/yppasswdd start

Starting YP passwd service:
[  OK  ]

[root@master ~]#
chkconfig rpcbind on

[root@master ~]#
chkconfig ypserv on

[root@master ~]#
chkconfig yppasswdd on

[root@master ~]#
/usr/lib64/yp/ypinit -m
# update NIS database

At this point, we have to construct a list of the hosts which will run NIS servers. dlp.srv.world is in the list of NIS server hosts. Please continue to add the names for the other hosts, one per line. When you are done with the list, type a <control D>.
next host to add: dlp.srv.world
next host to add:
# push Ctrl + D key

The current list of NIS servers looks like this:

dlp.srv.world

Is this correct? [y/n: y]
y

We need a few minutes to build the databases...

dlp.srv.world has been set up as a NIS master server.

Now you can run ypinit -s dlp.srv.world on all slave server.

# It's neccessary to update NIS database with following way if new user is added again

[root@master ~]#
cd /var/yp

[root@master yp]#
