Ubuntu Hardy and NIS Server

Sven Bachmann
Hi, here is a walkthrough to set up a NIS server under Ubuntu Hardy, because the standard configuration is only for clients. apt-get install nis NIS domain: _be creative_ :-) Then wait till the ypbind search is over (it tries very hard to find a server…) otherwise the package is not completely installed. In the mean time, you can prepare the server. /etc/yp.conf ypserver /etc/default/nis NISSERVER = master NISCLIENT = false /etc/ypserv.
