Solaris Naming Administration Guide

How to Revert to Using Non-Preferred Servers

To specify that clients using a server list may obtain NIS+ information from servers not named in the list if no preferred servers are available:

    Run nisprefadm with the -o all option.

#nisprefadm -L|-G -o all


Note -

This is the default behavior. You only need to use the -o all option if you have previously specified preferred-only servers with the -o pref_only option.

For example, to specify in altair's local client_info file that altair can now use non-preferred servers if no preferred servers can be reached:

altair# nisprefadm -L -o all
