Description of problem:
ypinit (nis slave) produced output "rpc time out" if I try to get the nis maps
from nis master. Also the normal tranfer between master and slave produced
these messages (after a while). The nis master is RedHat 7.3.
Other nis slaves (RH 7.3) has no problem.
If I update to the RH 7.3 rpms (ypserv, yptools, ypbind) there are no "rpc
time out" messages.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use nis master with RH7.3
2. Use nis slave with RH7.2
3. Try to get nis maps with ypinit -s <master>
Actual Results: there are messages like "rpc time out"
Expected Results: get nis maps from master
Yes. this is a known bug in the 7.2 init scripts. It's been fixed in 7.3.
