Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 20106
ypbind update requires different config format for yp.conf
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:29:37 EDT
The security update for ypbind changes the format of /etc/yp.conf in
My old yp.conf file, which also works on other Unix platforms, is:
This no longer works.
My new file, which does work, is
domain slam server ds2.gl.umbc.edu
domain slam server irix1.gl.umbc.edu
domain slam server irix2.gl.umbc.edu
The only time the config file won't need to be changed is if the user only
uses broadcast mode, as far as I can tell.
The least the announcement should do is warn users of the configuration
At best, it shouldn't change the file. ;-)
This bug is three weeks old; all you guys have to do is release an updated
errata report, not release a new package. Can we have some action on this
It's far to late to change the errata message now, if we release any new errata
for 6.2 i'll mention it though.
