vixie-cron and ypbind starting order should be reversed
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:08:38 EDT
Default crond is started before ypbind. This is a problem,
because crond will not accept jobs from users which it
doesn't know. And of course a lot of users won't be 'known'
until ypbind has been started.
Should be easy enough to fix, but it is quite annoying...

The default start and stop orders for the NIS daemons are
grep chkconfig yp*
ypbind:# chkconfig: - 13 87
yppasswdd:# chkconfig: - 66 34
ypserv:# chkconfig: - 65 35
ypbind is started before and stopped after ypserv but ypbind
depends on ypserv.
This makes it difficult to run NIS clients on the same
machine as an NIS server (to for example use netgroups).
What is the best solution to this problem? I had thought of
changing the initscripts to change the start and stop order
but I think this might have hidden dependencies with other

I think nfsfs should be started after ypbind too. When you have a
setup without a nameserver but with NIS you probably want to use NIS
to distribute hostnames. Mounting of nfsfs will fail on boot if you
have this setup and want to use hostnames in /etc/fstab
bill: you want to futz with these?
this has been fixed in 5.9; the
current starting order is:
