Description: clients and daemons for the Network Information Service (NIS)
 This package provides tools for setting up and maintaining a NIS domain.
 NIS, originally known as Yellow Pages (YP), is mostly used to let
 several machines in a network share the same account information, such
 as the password file.
Template: nis/domain
Type: string
# Translators, it is recommended to keep "domainname" which is a
# technical term in NIS. If you insist on translating, you can do
#  things such as:
# 'nom de domaine (domainname)' (for a French translation)
_Description: NIS domain:
 Please choose the NIS "domainname" for this system. If you want this
 machine to just be a client, you should enter the name of the
 NIS domain you wish to join.
 Alternatively, if this machine is to be a NIS server, you can
 either enter a new NIS "domainname" or
 the name of an existing NIS domain.
