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

ProcedureHow to Set Up DNS Forwarding in NIS+

  1. Log in as superuser.

  2. Properly configure the hosts line in the /etc/resolv.conf file to read: hosts:nisplus dns files.

    In this implementation of NIS+, if a /etc/resolv.conf file exists on the server, ypstart automatically starts the ypserv daemon with the -d option to forward requests to DNS.
