How to Initialize a New Subdomain Client Machine

    Type the following command as superuser to initialize the new client on the new client machine.

subclient1# nisclient -i -d -h client2
Initializing client subclient1 for domain "".
Once initialization is done, you will need to reboot your machine.
Do you want to continue? (type 'Y' to continue, 'N' to exit this script)

The -i option initializes a client. The -d option specifies the new NIS+ domain name. (If the domain name is not specified, the default becomes the current domain name.) The -h option specifies the NIS+ server's host name.
