How to Refresh the NIS Server Service

This procedure explains how to refresh the NIS server services after a configuration change has been made.

When you use the svcadm command, a specific instance name is required only if you are running more than one service instance. For more information, see NIS and the Service Management Facility, or the svcadm(1M) man page.

  1. Become an administrator.

    For more information about obtaining the appropriate rights to perform specific tasks, see Using Your Assigned Administrative Rights in Securing Users and Processes in Oracle Solaris 11.3.

  2. Refresh the required NIS server services.
    # svcadm refresh network/nis/domain:default
    # svcadm refresh network/nis/server:default
