NIS : Configure Client
2022/09/09
 
Configure NIS Client to bind NIS Server to login with NIS user account.
[1] Install NIS System.
root@node01:~#
apt -y install nis
[2] Configure as a NIS Client.
root@node01:~#
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 to the end: [domain name] [server] [NIS server's hostname]

domain srv.world server dlp.srv.world
root@node01:~#
vi /etc/nsswitch.conf
# line 7: add like follows

passwd:         files systemd nis
group:          files systemd nis
shadow:         files nis
gshadow:        files

hosts:          files dns nis

root@node01:~#
vi /etc/defaultdomain
# create new : set NIS domain name

srv.world
# set follows if needed (create home directory automatically if none)

root@node01:~#
vi /etc/pam.d/common-session
# add to the end

session optional        pam_mkhomedir.so skel=/etc/skel umask=077
