Ah, my bread and butter.

# Hello,

# Everything seems to be working OK for other NetBSD client systems.
# I'm trying to add a Solaris 7 client, and I can't figure out how to
# add the shadow map.  I added "shadow" to the "all" lines in the yp
# Makefiles on zippy, and did a "make" in /var/yp, which built the
# shadow.byname.db file.  But it complains:
# yppush: error finding master for shadow.byname in grok: No such map in
# server's domain
# The slave server doesn't get the new map, and "ypcat shadow" doesn't
# work.  What do I need to do to add this map to the maps that the yp
# servers know about?

When you say "shadow", first of all, are you sure that the shadows
are compatible between Solaris and NetBSD?  I seem to recall that being
a problem.

What's ypwhich -m say?

You may have to run a 'ypinit -s zippy' on your Sol7 client.
You may also need to make good'n'sure that your sol7 client is actually
binding to your master.

Do you have a ypservers map?

Just some stuff to ask over.  Hope it helps.
