Description Zaiwen 2005-10-27 20:19:02 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)

Description of problem:
In RHEL 4.0, I am trying to define NIS domain for my system. The man page tells to set a value in /etc/sysconfig/network file, but it doesn't work for me. I set it and reboot, but "domainname" still show none.

My workaround is to set it in /etc/rc.d/rc.local:

The workaround works fine, but I still would like to report to you this possible bug.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. $ cat /etc/sysconfig/network

2. Reboot machine.

3. check "domainname" 

Actual Results:  #domainname

Expected Results:  domainname should be set as the value in /etc/sysconfig/network

Do you have ypbind set to run on startup?  ie. send me the output from
'chkconfig --list ypbind'.

Oops, I know what you mean.  After I set ypbind to run on startup, it works 
fine. You can close this issue....Sorry for false alarm...
