migration solaris nis master to linux nis master


We are retiring all of our solaris boxes and moving to linux. I have been tasked to move our nis master server from a solaris host to a linux master server, but haven't been able (or just blind) to find any good howto's to do this.  I have all of the nis configuration files from the solarix box, and am curious if I can just edit the makefile to reflect the nis maps I copied over from the sun box. Would there be any "gotchas" of doing it this way as I suspect that it's not that easy.

Any tips or pointers would be appreciated .

linux is picky about the NIS protocol versions, so it's best you ensure that all, master and clients, use the same
i.g. most files from Solaris should work on Linux too.
