Re: [seul-edu] Alternatives to NIS
Your error messages are a total mystery to me, given that you didn't bother
to quote them. My ESP isn't working well today, but I'll have a go...
If it's saying 'Entering directory /root' you need to set your
# nisdomainname my-domain-name
Now run make in the /var/yp directory. It'll whinge about not being able to
update the local ypserv - hardly a surprise if you haven't started ypserv
If it complains about missing files, it's probably stuff you don't need
(mine complains about the absence of /etc/aliases). Edit /var/yp/Makefile
and remove the offending dependency from the 'all' target.
Now start your yp server:
# service ypserv start.
These instructions are based on RH7, but most systems will be similar
enough that you can work it out.
