System Administration Guide: Naming and Directory Services (NIS+)

ProcedureHow to Enable an NIS+ Client to Use IPv6

Note –

In the current release, skip this task.

On a system that is running a release prior to the Solaris 10 7/07 release, perform this task.

  1. Log in as superuser.

  2. Edit the /etc/nsswitch.conf file.

  3. Add the new ipnodes source and specify the naming service (such as ldap).

    ipnodes: ldap [NOTFOUND=return] files

    ipnodes defaults to files. During the transition from IPv4 to IPv6, where all naming services are not aware of IPv6 addresses, you should accept the files default. Otherwise, unnecessary delays might result during the resolution of addresses.

  4. Save the file and reboot the machine.

    Because the nscd daemon caches this information, which it reads at start up, you must reboot the machine now.
