Re: Making a new NIS server on Redhat.



In order to create a new NIS server:

   Do you want the master to use the local files for domain sources? If
   not, create a domain source directory ( eg /etc/NIS) and put the domain
   source files in there.

   Think of a proper domainname and configure this into /var/yp.conf

   Modify the /var/yp/Makefile so that $(YPSRCDIR) points to the
   sourcefiles of your domain.

   Cd to /usr/lib/yp
   Issue the ypinit –m command, and follow instructions

   Note that on redhat 3 workstation installations, the ypserv package will
   not be available.
   you can download source and make it, it works ok,

   Remember to make some slave servers using the "ypinit -s $master"

Could someone help me with a Procedure/Guide on what i would need to do to
get my Redhat ES Version 3 machines to become a NIS server. The current NIS
server is a Sun machine that is being decommissioned in the next few weeks.


Any help on this would be much appreciated.

Regards

Andrew Bridgeman
