Major Solaris NIS Problems
Posted on 1997-03-24
We have a bunch of Solaris 2.5.1 servers that
are experiencing major NIS problems. We have installed
NSKIT 1.2 (with appropriate patches). We have all OS patches installed. We are having problems in these areas:
- Autmount is not working properly (same subnet, fast machines) - it timesout mounting a share
- Logging in takes a long time to authenticate (Pc and UNIX side) and sometime authenticates correct passwords incorrectly.
- PC users cannot use NIS to do hostname resolution using a winsock application.
- Ypbind loses its binding to the domain often.
