Description Preston Brown 1999-02-22 15:38:34 UTC
while ypbind-mt does work for NIS, all the yp-tools seem to
be having problems with the new daemon.  For instance:

[pbrown@pip pbrown]$ ypcat passwd
No such map passwd.byname. Reason: Can't communicate with
portmapper
[pbrown@pip pbrown]$ ps auxw | grep yp
pbrown   30583  0.0  0.6  1148   408  p9 S    10:35   0:00
grep yp
root      1612  0.0  0.2  1316   136  ?  S   Feb 10   0:00
(ypbind)
root      1615  0.0  0.2  1316   136  ?  S   Feb 10   0:00
(ypbind)
root      1616  0.0  0.2  1316   136  ?  S   Feb 10   0:00
(ypbind)

Comment 1 Preston Brown 1999-02-22 15:42:59 UTC
actually, it appears ypcat may be the only one with an issue.

Comment 2 Cristian Gafton 1999-03-18 22:13:59 UTC
provided that everything on the NIS network is running smoothly, this
works for me
