system-config-authentication fails to update /etc/sysconfig/network for NIS domain
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:45 EST
Description of problem:
Config the NIS domain and server via "system-config-authentication", it updates
the /etc/yp.conf file. But it does NOT put "NISDOMAIN=xxx"
in /etc/sysconfig/network. So when I run "service ypbind start" or reboot the
machine, ypbind doesn't run unless I type "domainname xxx".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run /usr/sbin/system-config-authentication
2. check "Enable NIS Support" and click on "Configure NIS..."
3. Fill in "NIS Domain" and "NIS Server"
4. Click "OK" and "OK"
ypbind start successfully. But /etc/sysconfig/network is not updated
/etc/sysconfig/network need to be updated with "NISDOMAIN=xxx". Otherwise, the
ypbind won't start after reboot due to NIS domain is not set.
