Description James Pearson 2000-03-02 07:29:36 EST
I've just upgraded to ypserv-1.3.9-1 on all our ypservers. However, I can
no longer yppush new maps to the slave servers from the master.

The slave servers give the message:

Mar  1 12:33:41 web ypserv[22251]: ypproc_xfr: refuse to transfer auto.test
from 172.16.3.1, map doesn't exist

The ChangeLog in /usr/doc/ypserv-1.3.9 states:

        * server.c (ypproc_xfr_2_svc): By default, don't allow new maps.

However, the only way I can find to allow new maps is to recompile the
source.

It would be better if the ability to accept, or not, new maps could be
configured via /etc/ypserv.conf.

this (security?) policy decision should be made by the author of the
package.
