Configure NIS Client
2011/04/30
  Configure NIS clients

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


Preconfiguring packages ...

# input domain name


[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 drv.srv.world


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


passwd:

# line 7: add

group:
