Nis slave not updating
Do you want this procedure to quit on non-fatal errors?
[y/n: n] Ok, please remember to go back and redo manually whatever fails. At this point, we have to construct a list of this domains YP servers. Please continue to add any slave servers, one per line.
Strange failure modes can result if one server goes down and others are dependent upon it.
Eventually, all the clients will time out and attempt to bind to other servers, but the delay involved can be considerable and the failure mode is still present since the servers might bind to each other all over again.
A server that is also a client can be forced to bind to a particular server by adding these additional lines to Server Type: MASTER Domain: test-domain Creating an YP server will require that you answer a few questions.Questions will all be asked at the beginning of the procedure.[y/n: n] Ok, please remember to go back and redo manually whatever fails. ypxfr: Exiting: Map successfully transferred Transferring netgroup.byhost...ypxfr: Exiting: Map successfully transferred Transferring master.passwd.byuid...The configuration of the lab will be as follows: clients.
It is generally a good idea to force the servers to bind to themselves rather than allowing them to broadcast bind requests and possibly become bound to each other.
