                   Red Hat, Inc. Red Hat Bug Fix Advisory

Synopsis:          new ypbind package available for Red Hat Linux 7.1
Advisory ID:       RHBA-2001:076-02
Issue date:        2001-06-04
Updated on:        2001-06-06
Product:           Red Hat Linux
Keywords:          ypbind timeout
Cross references:  

1. Topic:

The ypbind system initialization script included with Red Hat Linux 7.1 
sometimes fails to bind to a NIS server, but it reports success.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 7.1 - i386

3. Problem description:

The ypbind initialization script included with Red Hat Linux 7.1, responsible for 
binding a computer to an NIS server at boot time, can fail unexpectedly.  The 
service will report that it has started successfully when in fact no NIS server 
has been bound to.

The script has been reworked to eliminate potential failures.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade.  Only those
RPMs which are currently installed will be updated.  Those RPMs which are
not installed but included in the list will not be updated.  Note that you
can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains the
desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via Red Hat Network.  Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates.  To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:


This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla for more info):

37463 - ypbind sometimes fails to find the domain server
