NIS Server
2010/11/05
  Configure NIS Server in order to share users' accounts among local networks.
[root@dlp ~]#
yum -y install ypserv rpcbind


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

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


NETWORKING=yes
HOSTNAME=dlp.srv.world
# add at the the last line

NISDOMAIN=srv.world

[root@dlp ~]#
chkconfig rpcbind on

[root@dlp ~]#
chkconfig ypserv on

[root@dlp ~]#
chkconfig yppasswdd on


[root@dlp ~]#
/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
# answer 'yes'

We need a few minutes to build the databases...
Building /var/yp/srv.world/ypservers...
Running /var/yp/Makefile...

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@dlp ~]#
cd /var/yp

[root@dlp yp]#
