Configure NIS Server in order to share users' accounts in your local networks.
[1] Configure NIS Server.
dlp:~ #
zypper -n install ypserv
# set NIS domain name

dlp:~ #
ypdomainname srv.world

dlp:~ #
echo "srv.world" > /etc/defaultdomain

dlp:~ #

dlp:~ #
vi /var/yp/securenets
# comment out

# add IP addresses you allow to access to NIS server

255.255.255.0   10.0.0.0

dlp:~ #
vi /etc/hosts
# add own host for NIS database

10.0.0.30   dlp.srv.world dlp

dlp:~ #
/etc/init.d/rpcbind start

dlp:~ #
/etc/init.d/ypserv start

dlp:~ #
/etc/init.d/ypxfrd start

dlp:~ #
/etc/init.d/yppasswdd start

dlp:~ #
chkconfig rpcbind on

dlp:~ #
chkconfig ypserv on

dlp:~ #
chkconfig ypxfrd on

dlp:~ #
chkconfig yppasswdd on
# update NIS database

dlp:~ #
/usr/lib/yp/ypinit -m
At this point, we have to construct a list of the hosts which will run NIS servers. dlp 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

next host to add:
   
# Ctrl + D key

The current list of NIS servers looks like this:
dlp.srv.world
Is this correct? [y/n: y]
y
   
# y key

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

dlp has been set up as a NIS master server.
Now you can run ypinit -s dlp on all slave server.
# If you added users in local server, apply them to NIS database, too.

dlp:~ #
cd /var/yp

dlp:/var/yp #
