Description landrye 1999-01-15 05:47:05 UTC
The default start and stop orders for the NIS daemons are

cd /etc/rc.d/init.d
grep chkconfig yp*

ypbind:# chkconfig: - 13 87
yppasswdd:# chkconfig: - 66 34
ypserv:# chkconfig: - 65 35

ypbind is started before and stopped after ypserv but ypbind
depends on ypserv.

This makes it difficult to run NIS clients on the same
machine as an NIS server (to for example use netgroups).

What is the best solution to this problem?  I had thought of
changing the initscripts to change the start and stop order
but I think this might have hidden dependencies with other
