Description Mike Sklar 2001-05-22 12:02:41 EDT
Description of Problem:

ypmatch does not work properly for checking services. Even though the /var/yp/nicknames is setup to to lookup byname and not bynumber.

How Reproducible:

asdfjkl$ ypmatch nntp hosts

Can't match key nntp in map hosts.byname. Reason: No such key in map

asdfjkl$ grep services /etc/nsswitch.conf /var/yp/nicknames

/etc/nsswitch.conf:services:   nis files

/var/yp/nicknames:services      services.byname

Steps to Reproduce:

1. bind to a yp server

2. make sure you /etc/nsswitch.conf and /var/yp/nicknames looks like mine.

3. ypmatch <servicename> services

Actual Results:

Expected Results:

Fix ypmatch code to do correct lookups for byname, not just bynumber.
