How to Disable NIS on RHEL 5.0?


My company has an RHEL 5.0 server on which we have been instructed by outside auditors to disable or uninstall NIS. I'm not finding a method for doing so in my on-line searches. Any ideas? Thank you for your help.

Stop the ypbind and ypserv daemons and prevent them from starting at boot (e.g. chkconfig ypbind off )
