It can success to find when I use same configuration and

The clinet is placed in the same network segment to the server.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
always when I use FC4(I can reproduce this problem on
a notebook(i386) and a desktop(x86_64))
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run system-config-authentication
2. activate NIS authentication
3. set nis domain and leave nis server blank
