Description of problem:
I selected NIS authentication during the installation, but after the install,
the nsswitch file only contained files nisplus, not files nis nisplus.
Also, the nisdomain was not set, even though I specified to broadcast for the
server in the domain I told it to use for nis during the installation.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Choose NIS during install (broadcast server)
2.view /etc/nsswitch.conf after install
Actual Results: <snip>
passwd: files nisplus
shadow: files nisplus
group: files nisplus
Expected Results: passwd: files nis nisplus
shadow: files nis nisplus
group: files nis nisplus
I could not reproduce this behaviour you describe in a graphical install where I
- use NIS for authetication
- use a NIS domain of 'my.nis.domain'
- use broadcast
The files all appeared to be setup correctly.
Could you give us some more detailed instructions on how to reproduce this issue?
And was this a text or graphical based install?
It was a graphical installation. I will have to pay attention on my next
installation to see if this happens again.
