Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 19404
ypbind does not run after NIS is set up with linuxconf
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:29:25 EDT
After running linuxconf in gnome as root, setting an NIS domain and NIS
server, and activating the changes, linuxconf propoerly
edits /etc/yp.conf, but does not cause ypbind to be started when entering
any run level. You still have to do a 'chkconfig --level 345 ypbind on'
to bind to an NIS domain in any of the multi-user run levels.
I also didn't see a way to edit/set features controlled
by /etc/nsswitch.conf, or /etc/hosts, /etc/passwd, /etc/group. I'm not
sure if that's a bug report or a feature request... :)
The back-end controls what the gnome-linuxconf front-end does, so I'm
reassigning this to the linuxconf component. The /usr/sbin/authconfig tool
available from /usr/sbin/setup in RHL 7 includes this functionality as well.
Closing because we don't ship linuxconf anymore
