NIS and /etc/hosts



Folks,

I get the most bizarre problem with NIS.

If I put "ypserver 192.168.1.2" in /etc/yp.conf everything works just
fine.  If I put "ypserver mynishost" in there, I get lots of
"YPBINDPROC_DOMAIN: Domain not bound" errors.

mynishost is definitely, explicitly in /etc/hosts as 192.168.1.2.

What could I be doing wrong?  I'm keen to trace my problem or cause a
bug to be fixed, whichever comes first.

Thanks

Simon Read
