Description keithu@parl.clemson.edu 2000-08-28 19:30:33 EDT
Ugh.  What a mess.  ypinit for the slave doesn't work, but if I manually
start ypxfrd, I can ypxfr each map by hand.  Pushes don't work until I have
done the tranfers by hand, and still give this

Updating passwd.byname...
YPPUSH: Cannot call YPPROC_XFR: RPC: Can't decode result
Updating passwd.byuid...

This could be a dup of 26362
Comment 2 Alexander Larsson 2002-03-27 12:12:14 EST
Do you get:

Can't enumerate maps from $MASTER. Please check that it is running.

When trying to initialize the slave server?

Comment 3 keithu@parl.clemson.edu 2002-03-27 12:20:05 EST
Ok, you realize that this bug was filed over 1.5 years ago, right?

As best I remember, there was an error that ypxfrd was not running and so I
started it by hand.  Then, I got the error reported in the bug report when
trying ypinit again.  I finally resolved this by moving the maps manually with
ypxfr.  I think I had the same problem when I moved the slave to 7.2, but I
can't remember right now.
Comment 4 Alexander Larsson 2002-03-27 12:28:26 EST
Ok. I'll try to reproduce it.
Comment 5 keithu@parl.clemson.edu 2003-02-11 11:07:34 EST
Ok, so, you guys can kill this bug for all I care.  It's been 2.5 YEARS since it
was opened...  And a year since anybody commented on it.  So, um, I just don't
care about RH 6.2 masters anymore and I'm not at the site where I was running a
ypmaster and slave setup, so I won't be able to supply any more information. 
Nor do I know if it persisted after they moved the master to RH 7.2 (or was it
7.3, don't remember) 

On the flip side, if this bug somehow persisted through to RH 8.0, you may want
to fix it....  I sure hope it didn't...
