Description Adam Thompson 2003-06-10 17:25:27 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 

Description of problem:

in /etc/rc.d/init.d/ypxfrd, the binary is referenced as "ypxfrd" but it is in 
fact "rpc.ypxfrd".

This bug is reported many times elsewhere and (apparently) fixed as of RH7.3
(?) but never made it into 2.1AS errata.

Duplicate of 65891, 55234, 58183, 55234 and 44845.

...and would someone please show Florian LaRoche how to mark bugs as 
duplicates?  Those bugs were all closed with RAWH, whereas all but one should 
be DUPL instead.

Normally, this would be a severity NORMAL bug, but I'm trying to cluster NIS 
services under 2.1AS - and given how much we paid for this product, I would 
have expected things like this to have been backported/patched by now...

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt to start ypxfrd via /etc/rc.d/init/ypxfrd

Actual Results:  execvp() error, ypxfrd does not start

Expected Results:  rpc.ypxfrd should be called, not "ypxfrd"

This appears to be resolved in the most recent released version of 2.1, which
has ypserv-2.8-0.AS21E in it. Closing.
