When specifying server or client machines, keep in mind the following points:
Server and client names do not need to be fully qualified so long as they are in the same NIS+ domain and uniquely identify the object. You can simply use the machine name by itself.
If a server or subnet is in another NIS+ domain, you need to include enough of the domain name to uniquely identify that machine. For example, if you are in the sales.doc.com domain and you need to specify the nismaster2 machine in the manf.doc.com domain, you need only enter nismaster2.manf.
