NIS - ypcat command returns error on Red Hat


Hi all,

Having a problem with NIS and was wondering if anyone could suggest a fix.

Master server is running on red hat enterprise 5.4.
Master is setup and running. No slaves. Clients are installed and working.
Users can log onto all systems that use this NIS environment.
Everything works fine except when I issue the ypcat command I get "ypcat: internal NIS server or client error".
I get the same error message no matter which map I try to display and it doesn't matter whether I issue the command on the master or the client.
When I issue the ypcat -x command I see all the maps that are available.
When I issue the ypwhich -m command I see all the maps and the server that serves them, and it is the correct master server.
On the client when I issue the ypwhich command it returns the correct master server.
When I change a map source file and run the make command only the recently changed maps get recreated.
I'm stumped.


Any thought?

Thanks in advance.

is this solved or not? If so, some feedback on what it was would be good.
