Description Michael J. Chudobiak 2009-02-02 14:18:36 EST
After upgrading to rawhide, ypbind binds fail at ypbind service start, and remote users can no longer log in.

On the nis server, I get these logged errors:

Feb  2 14:15:28 server2 ypserv[2312]: refused connect from to procedure ypproc_match (nisavtech,shadow.byname;-1)

Downgrading to the F10 ypbind rpm fixes the problem. Has something changed in ypbind rawhide that affect nis shadow files?

My nsswitch.conf file is below.

- Mike

passwd:     files nis
shadow:     files nis
group:      files nis
hosts:      files nis dns
bootparams: nisplus [NOTFOUND=return] files
ethers:     files
netmasks:   files
networks:   files
protocols:  files
rpc:        files
services:   files
netgroup:   files nis
publickey:  nisplus
automount:  files nis
aliases:    files nisplus
Comment 1 Michael J. Chudobiak 2009-02-02 15:14:30 EST
More info - the F10 nis server has this ypserv.conf:

dns: no
files: 30
xfr_check_port: yes
*                          : *       : shadow.byname    : port
*                          : *       : passwd.adjunct.byname : port

Thanks for report. Your configuration files are OK. As I investigated it right now, I bet you don't use NetworkManager. There's fix of https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=480096 in Rawhide and it seems breaking ypbind functionality without NM. I'll look at it...
Comment 3 Michael J. Chudobiak 2009-02-03 09:06:30 EST
As you say, I don't use NetworkManager.

I have reverted back to F10, because rawhide created more problems than it solved for me. So I can't provide much more feedback...

Comment 5 Vitezslav Crhonek 2009-02-10 08:14:56 EST
There's workaround - you should use "-no-dbus" option and binding works fine.
Comment 6 Michael Young 2009-02-10 08:35:17 EST
Creating the file /etc/sysconfig/ypbind containing the line
and doing a "service ypbind restart" works around the problem I was seeing with ypbind-1.20.4-13.fc11.i386 , and yes, I don't use NetworkManager.
Comment 7 Juan Quintela 2009-04-21 08:58:11 EDT
Just to confirm comment #6.  I am not using NetworkManager either, and using the "
-no-dbus" fixes my problems.
Comment 8 Michael J. Chudobiak 2009-04-21 09:38:42 EDT
So what's the expected resolution in F11? "-no-dbus" on every client?
