fnlist Does not List Suborganizations


You run fnlist with an organization name, expecting to see suborganizations, but instead see nothing.

Possible Cause:

This is caused by an NIS+ configuration problem. Suborganizations must be NIS+ domains. By definition, an NIS+ domain must have a subdirectory named org_dir.


Use the nisls command to see what subdirectories exist. Run nisls on each subdirectory to verify which subdirectories have an org_dir. The subdirectories with an org_dir are suborganizations.
