You need to be superuser or establish an equivalent role to perform this procedure.
You need the superuser password of the client that you will convert into a server before you can start the NIS+ service by using the svcadm command.
Before you start the NIS+ service from the command line by using svcadm, be sure the following prerequisites have been met.
The domain must have already been configured and its master server must be running.
The master server of the domain's tables must be populated. (At a minimum, the hosts table must have an entry for the new client machine.)
You must have initialized the client machine in the domain.
You must be logged in as root on the client machine. In this example, the client machine is named client1.
Optionally, if using DES authentication, the client machine must use the same Diffie-Hellman key configuration as that used on the master server.
View the /lib/svc/method/nisplus file to verify that the -Y option does not appear.
See NIS+ and the Service Management Facility for more information.
Start the NIS+ service.
You need to be superuser or establish an equivalent role to perform this step.
client1# svcadm enable /network/rpc/nisplus:default
Now this server is ready to be designated a master or replica of a domain.
