Test 3: yp_match Fails. Cannot bind to NIS from any machine. Centos(srv) Raspbian(cl)


Hi LQ,

I am trying to get NIS working for an assignment. I am a complete Linux newbie.

I cant seem to get the raspbian client to connect to the NIS server (CentOS 6.4). I get the following error when running yptest on the server

"Test 3: yp_match
WARNING: No such key in map (Map passwd.byname, key nobody)"

When attempting to start NIS on the RPi it fails to bind to the server every time.

Any help would be massively appreciated!

Thanks,
Leigh

What have you done to configure NIS? Have you configured the /etc/yp.conf file? Have you configured the /etc/nsswitch file? Have you named the NIS Domain? Have you started: ypserv on the server and ypbind on the client?

Here is a pretty good tutorial: http://www.yolinux.com/TUTORIALS/NIS.html
