Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 60377
NIS Makefile overwritten during upgrade
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:40:38 EDT
Description of Problem:
The makefile (/var/yp/Makefile) does not appear to be treated as a config
file, and it really is.
Here in biology, we've added several tables for the automounter, chosen
not to use shadow passwords, etc etc.
So, when I upgraded our NIS server, imagine my .... surprise to discover
that the first make after adding a new group results in a broken NIS for
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
However, I note that in a verify:
[root@pogonia yp]# rpm -V ypserv
SM5....T c /var/yp/Makefile
SM5...GT c /var/yp/securenets
That the makefile is marked as a config file. However, rpm (during the
anaconda upgrade from RH 7.1) most definately did not create an rpmsave or
/var/yp/Makefile is marked as %config, so everything should be fine.

Yes, which I noted in the bug report.
Care to comment why we had a problem then? Did you try it? Or just make it
WORKSFORME after reading the spec file?
This seems to be reported in 20106 too.
This is in fact a bug in rpm.
