2010/07/22
  Configure on NIS clients in order to share users' accounts.

[1] Install NIS
root@mail05:~#
aptitude -y install nis portmap


Preconfiguring packages ...

# input domain name


root@mail05:~#
update-rc.d portmap defaults 10
# set before NIS

update-rc.d: warning: /etc/init.d/portmap missing LSB information
update-rc.d: see <http://wiki.debian.org/LSBInitScripts>
# it's no ploblem above. it may be bugs

  Adding system startup for /etc/init.d/portmap ...
/etc/rc0.d/K19portmap -> ../init.d/portmap

/etc/rc1.d/K19portmap -> ../init.d/portmap

/etc/rc6.d/K19portmap -> ../init.d/portmap

/etc/rc2.d/S19portmap -> ../init.d/portmap

/etc/rc3.d/S19portmap -> ../init.d/portmap

/etc/rc4.d/S19portmap -> ../init.d/portmap

/etc/rc5.d/S19portmap -> ../init.d/portmap

[2] Configure as a NIS Client
root@mail05:~#
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 bottom: (domain name) (server) (NIS server's hostname)

domain srv.world server master.srv.world


root@mail05:~#
vi /etc/nsswitch.conf
