Solaris Naming Administration Guide

Starting a NIS-Compatible Daemon

You can start the NIS+ daemon in NIS-compatibility mode in any server, including the root master. Use the -Y (uppercase) option:

rpc.nisd -Y

If the server is rebooted, the daemon will not restart in NIS-compatibility mode unless you also uncomment the line that contains EMULYP=Y in the server's /etc/init.d/rpc file.
