admintool: Received communication service error 4


AdminTool could not start a display method, because a remote procedure, which had been called, timed out; therefore, it could not send the request. You receive this error when admintool(1M) tries to access the NIS or NIS+ tables and networking is not enabled.


Verify the system network status with ifconfig -a to make sure the system is connected to the network. Make sure the Ethernet cable is connected and the system is configured to run NIS or NIS+.
