Although not common, it is possible and sometimes desirable
to run ypbind and ypserv on the same machine.
/etc/rc.d/init.d/ypserv is configured so that ypserv is
started with S65, but ypbind is started with S13. ypserv
must be started first if the two services run on the same
machine. On my machine, I start ypserv with S12ypserv.
Also, ypbind should be stopped before ypserv is stopped in
order for shutdown to be clean.
This is a valid argument but it doesn't really hurt anything. The
ypbind daemon will startup and fail but it will keep trying unitl a
server is found. Therefore after the ypserv daemon starts then ypbind
will complete it's initialization. I will recommend to the developer
in charge of ypbind to make this change.
