|System Administration Guide: Naming and Directory Services (NIS+)|
This section describes how to remove NIS+ from an NIS+ server.
Keep in mind that removing NIS+ from a server does not remove the NIS+ name service from your network. See Removing the NIS+ Namespace for information on removing the NIS+ name service from a network and returning to either NIS or /etc files for naming purposes.
Note - You can replace a machine that you are using as an NIS+ server with another machine. See Replacing NIS+ Server Machines.
To remove NIS+ from a server, follow these steps:
An NIS+ server is also an NIS+ client. This means that you must first remove the client-related part of NIS+. You can use nisclient -r as described in Removing NIS+ That Was Installed Using nisclient or the NIS+ command set as described in Removing NIS+ That Was Installed Using NIS+ Commands.
server# nisrmdir -f groups_dir.domainname server# nisrmdir -f org_dir.domainname
client# svcadm disable /network/rpc/keyserv
This kills the rpc.nisd daemon and the nis_cachemgr.
server# svcadm disable /network/rpc/nisplus:default
server# svcadm disable /system/name-service-cache:default
rootmaster# rm -rf /var/nis/*
