NIS Server and Clients setup
Posted on 1997-10-15
I'm going to setup NIS server and clients in my 2 PC's so that I can share user account information between the 2 PC's. I've referenced to the HOW-TO documents and the user manual of RedHat 4.2 but they confuse me. According to the HOW-TO documents, ypbind should be up on clients. However, RedHat 4.2 manual said that ypbind need not be up on NIS
clients (I also have compiled yp-client-2.7 and have its ypbind crashed with segmentation fault.). I don't know which one is correct. The setup procedures of NIS server has not been detailed in both references. Would linux experts in the net direct me the standard procedures of setting up NIS server and clients?
Thanks in advance.
