nis: a problem with yppasswd and a question about ypcat shadow
The client seems to observe that yppasswd is running, but fails to get
it when it have to. Or do I misunderstand the following output:
$ rpcinfo -u sitvanitGateway yppasswd
program 100009 version 1 ready and waiting
$ rpcinfo -p sitvanitGateway | grep -A2 yppasswdd
100009 1 udp 600 yppasswdd
600100069 1 udp 603
600100069 1 tcp 605
yppasswd: yppasswdd not running on NIS master host
Are those 600100069 numbers related to nis? Why are they much different
from the other services numbers?
Does the following response to ypcat shadow expected?
$ ypcat shadow
No such map shadow. Reason: No such map in server's domain
Is this message is another way of saying `permission denied'?
I believe that a map shadow is there. Should I add a
line to /var/yp/nicknames?
