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

Prerequisites to Populating a NIS+ Subdomain's Tables

Before you run the nispopulate script to populate the new master server's tables, be sure the following prerequisites have been met.

Note –

The nispopulate script can fail if there is insufficient /tmp space on the system. To keep this from happening, you can set the environment variable TMPDIR to a different directory. If TMPDIR is not set to a valid directory, the script uses the /tmp directory instead.
