Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 74506
yp.conf reverts to "broadcast" during network (re)initialization
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:46:52 EDT
Description of Problem:
network (re)initialization causes ypbind to revert server setting to
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure ypbind to point to a specific server (verify contents of yp.conf)
2. restart network services
3. notice "broadcast" setting in yp.conf
I don't get that. Can you try without DHCP?
This still happens with Red Hat Linux 9, and is extremely annoying in an
environment with lots of temporary YP servers... especially since they can't be
configured to only listen to the private network they're created to serve
closing due to inactivity.
