Description of problem:
NIS/yp service fails to start on boot-up on FC5 pentium lap-top with fully
updated FC5 (not with development or test packages, though, just released
updates.)  I'm not sure which package update broke yp, becasue the pm-suspend
and pm-hibernate work so well nowadays that I haven't rebooted for ages.
Nothing has changed on our yp server.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
ypbind-1.19-0.i386.rpm (but this has not changed recently)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot machine
2. Attempts to start NIS
3. Says  YPBINDPROC_DOMAIN: Domain not bound lots of times then gives up
Actual results:
 YPBINDPROC_DOMAIN: Domain not bound error message

Expected results:
 Brief pause while NIS client registers with YP server.

Additional info:
This appears to be something that has broken in the last week's worth of FC5

/etc/yp.conf says: domain eng.pto.optronics.co.uk server <ip number>
(with the ip number filled in, obviously.)

/etc/sysconfig/network/network contains the domain name too.

None of this has changed.  Last week NIS was ok; this week: Broken.

Comment 1 Steve Dickson 2006-06-19 15:09:59 UTC
What is the output of 'domainname' ?

Comment 2 David W. Legg 2006-06-19 15:35:17 UTC
domainname returns the expected NIS domain = eng.pto.optronics.co.uk

Comment 3 Steve Dickson 2006-06-30 11:38:21 UTC
Is there anything in /var/log/messags what would give
a clue as to what broke? 

Comment 4 David W. Legg 2006-06-30 11:57:59 UTC
This problem has become unreproduceable since I changed the network cable on the
machine.  Has anyone else confirmed the problem?  If not, I suggest we close the
bugzilla report.

I'm rather surprised that a simple cable could cause such a behaviourally
complex problem.
