This chapter explains how to resolve problems encountered on networks running NIS. It covers problems that are encountered on both NIS clients and NIS servers.
Before trying to debug an NIS server or client, review Chapter 5, Network Information Service (Overview) which explains the NIS environment. Then, look for the subheading in this section that best describes your problem.
Note - The NIS service is managed by the Service Management Facility. Administrative actions on this service, such as enabling, disabling, or restarting, can be performed by using the svcadm command. See NIS and the Service Management Facility for more information about using SMF with NIS. For an overview of SMF, refer to Chapter 6, Managing Services (Overview), in Oracle Solaris Administration: Common Tasks. Also refer to the svcadm(1M) and svcs(1) man pages for more details.
