Questions:
      1.  Do you know your NIS domain name?
      2.  Is there a NIS master server on the same subnet
as the machine you want to set up secondary service on?
      3.  Are you comfortable with compiling code? (It
may be easier to set up DNS using a standard PD version of
named.)
      4.  Do you have root access to this machine.

To setup a secondary nameserver:

Make sure that in the primary nameserver the secondary nameserver is listed with a NS record. In the named.boot file of the secondary nameserver make sure all entries supposed to be a secondary entry its formatted like this:
SECONDARY <TAB> domain-to-secondaire <TAB> IP-to-prim-of-thedomain <TAB> filename-to-save-info-in

Secondary NIS:
Setup a ypserv on it and then:
cd /var/yp
mkdir ypdomainname
ypwhich -m | awk '{print $1}' > /tmp/Mapfile
for map in `cat /tmp/Mapfile`; do
ypfxr -c $map
done

On the master, cd /var/yp/ypdomainname
ypcat -k ypservers > TMP
echo nameofnewslave >> TMP
makedbm TMP ypservers
yppush ypservers
rm TMP

Tahts shopud do the trick.
Dont forget to check so you yp clients has both ypservers listed in their /etc/hosts.
