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

Two NIS+ Configuration Methods

The rest of this part of the guide describes two different methods of configuring an NIS+ namespace:

Note –

If you use the NIS+ command set, you must also make sure that each machine using NIS+ for its naming service has the correct nsswitch.conf file in its /etc directory as described in Chapter 1, Name Service Switch. If you use the NIS+ configuration scripts on a given machine, this step is performed for you.

See Chapter 22, Removing NIS+ for information on how to remove an NIS+ directory or domain, an NIS+ server, or the NIS+ namespace.
