Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 52726
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:36:40 EDT
Description of Problem:
if you try to make any individual database under /var/yp it never puts it
under /var/yp/DOMAINNAME, just under /var/yp. running 'make' and
rebuilding everything works OK.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
very... This bug has existed since at LEAST RH7.1 when I discovered it.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. set a domainname
2. start ypbind
3. go into /var/yp and make an individual database, such as passwd
the new databases get created under /var/yp
the databases SHOULD get created under /var/yp/DOMAINNAME where DOMAINNAME
is the current NIS domainname of the server
This could confuse a user coming from a standard UNIX environment where
he/she can make just the one database that needs updating instead of re-
running everything. (BTW.... this works correctly in solaris 2.6 2.7 2.8.
Those are the only ones I've tested. Prolly works ok in most of the rest
filed under another bug number for RH7.1
