At work I have a new PC which only works under NetBSD 4.0_RC5 and not
3.1 (and I have to turn sound card off of the kernel gets stuck on boot).
I have a YP server here and I can't get to ypbind to it from NetBSD.
I have an OpenBSD machine and Debian machine, and both can bind to the
To configure I have done this :
1. edited /etc/rc.conf
and inserted the following lines :
2. i have edited my /etc/fstab to mount three partitions
exported as NFS and they are mounted and accessible
3. i have used ypinit -c
and gave it the machine which is the NIS server
(I can ping it)
4. i have edited /etc/hosts and inserted a line to put
the IP of the NIS server, FQDN and alias
I can ping the NIS server by its name, FQDN or IP.
ypinit -c created the file where the NIS server name is visible
I start the services. rpcbind OK
ypbind : gets stuck forever
If I reboot, same thing.
I have searched with Google and found this page :
There's nothing new there. For the client, what I did on the OpenBSD box
was editing the /etc/hosts to insert the NIS there, put rpcbind and
ypbind to YES in /etc/rc.conf and use ypinit -c, give it the NIS IP or
name and then start the two services and it works.
On the NetBSD box I can't get it to work at all.
What did I forgot ??
