Solaris Common Messages and Troubleshooting Guide


Run the ypmatch(1) or nismatch(1) command to determine if the client host name is in the host's map. If not, add it to the NIS hosts map on the NIS master server. Then, make sure the /etc/hosts file on the client contains an IP address and entry for that host name, which is followed by loghost.

Note -

Reboot, if you changed the /etc/hosts file.

Check that the ypmatch(1) or nismatch(1) client hosts command returns the same IP host address as in the /etc/hosts file. Finally, quit all existing AnswerBooks and restart.
