ypserv does not serve updated maps after make
Last modified: 2013-03-03 17:59:22 EST
Description of problem:
ypserv doesn't serve updated maps after make
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. add user john
2. cd /var/yp;make
3. ypmatch john passwd
Can't match key john in map passwd.byname. Reason: No such key in map
It only works after /etc/init.d/ypserv stop; /etc/init.d/ypserv start
Sorry for late response, there was maintainer change.
You have probably something overlooked, because I'm not able to reproduce it. Do you have set right domainname on server, when updating maps? (It's not checked by /var/yp/Makefile.)
Do you have only one NIS master server or do you use slave servers? Is 'ypmatch john passwd' is executed on NIS client with correct NIS domainname set?
Please give me more details.
In needinfo for more than 2 years and not reproducible on our machines - closing INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Feel free to provide more details about the system - but please do so only if you experience the issue with RHEL-5 or later and move that bugzilla there. RHEL-4.9 is now out and RHEL-4 updates now do contain only critical and security fixes.
