Hostname and NISDOMAIN entries-I really need some help


When we're configuring NIS Server or client,we have to set HOSTNAME and NISDOMAIN in /etc/sysconfig/network file,on NIS server and client alike.

But does hostname have to be in the same domain as NIS server?

HOSTNAME=ni.COMP//can this domain differ from NISDOMAIN'S?

I still don't understand the difference between HOSTS and NETWORK file

thanx for your help
