Description Stephen Lawrence Jr. 2002-10-03 19:08:35 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.0) Gecko/20020607

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):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Choose NIS during install (broadcast server)
2.view /etc/nsswitch.conf after install
3.type 'nisdomainname'

Actual Results:  <snip>
passwd:     files nisplus
shadow:     files nisplus
group:      files nisplus

# nisdomainname

Expected Results:  passwd:     files nis nisplus
shadow:     files nis nisplus
group:      files nis nisplus

# nisdomainname

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?
Comment 2 Stephen Lawrence Jr. 2002-10-08 10:48:16 EDT
It was a graphical installation. I will have to pay attention on my next
installation to see if this happens again.
