Description of problem: Broken connections to non-Linux clients. Previous
configuration (FC6, ypserv-2.19-3) worked fine as NIS server for heterogenous
environment of FC6 & MacOS X machines. Upgrading to FC7 and ypserv-2.19-4.fc7
had no effect on FC6 and FC7 NIS clients, but broke connections over to MacOS
clients. Attempted to diagnose by running ypserv in debug mode, ended up seeing
only connections from Fedora clients -- literally no evidence of connections
from MacOS X clients despite confirming that ypbind was running there. Perhaps
some sort of filtering upstream of ypserv?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Fedora 7, ypserv
How reproducible: Very
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgraded ypserv on second machine, same effect observed
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
