Hi.  I have a Sol 2.8 NIS+ replica server that is having the problem below (server name=servername, and default domain=none.com):

Jul  1 11:29:34 servername nisd[190]: [ID 407633 daemon.warning] __directory_object: Failed to lookup org_dir.com.none.com., status Not Found, no such name
Jul  1 11:29:34 servername nisd[190]: [ID 407633 daemon.warning] __directory_object: Failed to lookup hosts.org_dir.com.none.com., status Not Found, no such name
Jul  1 11:29:34 servername nisd[190]: [ID 407633 daemon.warning] __directory_object: Failed to lookup org_dir.com.none.com., status Not Found, no such name
Jul  1 11:29:34 servername nisd[190]: [ID 407633 daemon.warning] __directory_object: Failed to lookup hosts.org_dir.com.none.com., status Not Found, no such name

It looks like there's an extra "com" in the table path hosts.org_dir.COM.none.com.  Can someone tell me what file I can edit or command to use to remove it?

If your NIS+ master is ok then you only need to repair your NIS+ replica server.

You can try to do the followings:

On the corrupted replica server, stop rpc.nisd, wipe the cache files and the trans.log file, restart rpc.nisd.  This wipes all cached information and tells the replica server to request a full resync.

 /etc/init.d/rpc stop
 rm /var/nis/NIS_SHARED_DIRCACHE
 rm /var/nis/.NIS_PRIVATE_DIRCACHE
 rm /var/nis/trans.log
 /etc/init.d/rpc start

Watch syslog during this process.

You can reboot the replica server.

or

you can wipe the NIS+ side of the replica server and rebuild from scratch.
(information about how to remove and build NIS+ replica server can be found on the following page)

Good luck!
