I have a NIS master server under Fedora  core 5
This server is very old and having some hardware issues and I’m planning to replace him with a new one. (new server will have new IP/hostname)
Would love to get some instructions the steps of configuring the new server.
After the new installation of the OS what steps do need to do in order to replicate and move all the NIS/YP data to the new server and make him active/Master
Should there be any issue if the new server will be CentOS 5.5 64bit (the old fedora is 32)?
What do I need to do to deactivate the old server after the new one is working?
Any workflow and instructions are welcome :)
