How to Populate the NIS+ Tables From NIS Maps

If populating from NIS maps, you need the following information.

Note –

The NIS domain name is case-sensitive, while the NIS+ domain name is not.

To populate master server tables from NIS maps, type the following commands.

client2# nispopulate -Y -d -h businessmachine -a 
IP_addr_of_NIS_server -y
NIS+ Domain name :
NIS (YP) domain :
NIS (YP) server hostname : businessmachine
Is this information correct? (type 'y' to accept, 'n' to change)

See How to Populate the NIS+ Root Master Server Tables for additional information.
