donlee_ppc> Are there any good "HOWTO" docs on setting up NIS on NetBSD 1.3.3 and 1.4.2?
(1) Read man ypinit(8) carefully, especially in the part,
To rebuild or refresh the maps for the YP domain <domain>, change to the
/var/yp/<domain> directory and run make.
This is the most important part.
grep DIR /var/yp/Makefile
will tell you what kind of maps available for the start.
(3) /etc/nsswitch.conf is another importance.
# Though, I had took almost over year to know amd.home was available.
# root@harry 17:47:05/000930(~)# cat /etc/amd/master
# /automount amd.home
# ( /automount may be any string you want, normally /home.)
