Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 30993
/etc/nsswitch.conf doesn't have nis auth by default
Last modified: 2016-11-24 10:04:44 EST
In versions of Red Hat up until 7.0 /etc/nsswitch.conf has included "nis"
as a authentication method. In Wolverine it leaves nis out. This breaks
anyone with a Red Hat Linux nis server.

Patch to correct /etc/nsswitch.conf
If you select NIS authentication on install, it is added. There's really
no sense in trying to have it authenticate NIS when it's not configured.
In fact, the original nsswitch.conf in glibc rpm includes nis, it is the
installer which removes them based on your selection.
Ahhhh, I see. Well, shouldn't the "Workstation" method of installation give you
the chance to configure NIS during the install?
