RE: [K12OSN] NIS ok but yppasswd still not going


	I am making that the assumption for nis is the same wherever the platform.
Whenever you make a change to the nis maps, you then issue a make for the
maps to be rebuilt.  The maps are then pushed to whatever ypslaves that you
have.  The clients do not need to get the updates until they make a request
to a master or a slave server for services.  So...  ypserv is a deamon on
the master and slave boxes services requests from clients when the maps are
needed.  Cron does not need to come into play at all for nis.

	Off the top of my head for nis, daemons running on the master or slaves
would be ypserv, yppasswd on master, and maybe one more.  cron does not to
be involved in making any pushes.  It has been a few years since I have done
this.  Things start going as you get older.....   ;^)

Hi Daniel,

Thank you for looking and answering back.

I had several consoles going and I must have clipped the yp.conf file from a
working system at school rather from the test system at home.

I'm embarrased to say what the problem changing yppasswords on the clients
was caused from, but here goes-

I didn't have hosts.allow or deny set on the client...Looks like a fast
little job only on 13 clients at school.  I've got the master clone box for
the last 30 stand-alone boxes sitting on the floor beside me here at home so
atleast I'll get it right for these.

Dan, please feel free to ask about NIS probs it you get any during you
migration.  Now I'm trying to figure out cron so ypserv will actually
provide the changes back to the clients ;-)

OK everyone, flame away!
