Description Kurt Ludwig 2001-08-28 14:28:00 UTC
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):

How Reproducible:

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

Actual Results:
the new databases get created under /var/yp

Expected Results:
the databases SHOULD get created under /var/yp/DOMAINNAME where DOMAINNAME 
is the current NIS domainname of the server

Additional Information:
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
