Reverting to NIS

A site that has transitioned from NIS to LDAP using the N2L service is expected to gradually replace all NIS clients with LDAP naming services clients. Support for NIS clients eventually becomes redundant. However, if required, the N2L service provides two ways to return to NIS, as explained in the procedures in this section.

Tip  -  Because traditional NIS ignores the N2L versions of the NIS maps if those maps are present, you can safely leave the N2L versions of the maps on the server. Keeping the N2L maps might be useful in case you later decide to re-enable N2L.
