Preparing a Slave Server
Before actually running the ypinit command to create
the slave servers, first make sure that the
svc:/network/nis/domain service has been configured.
NIS domain names are case-sensitive, although DNS domain names are not.
Make sure that the network is working properly before you configure an NIS slave
server. In particular, make sure that you can use the sshd
command to send files from the master NIS server to NIS slaves.
