Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'm in the process of decommissioning a NIS server as I've migrated my account management to active directory. All my *NIX users will now be authenticating to the AD server and I've reconfigured all servers and clients (that I know of) to use AD. Now, before I turn off NIS entirely, I need to ensure that nothing is still authenticating against it which leads to my question:
Does NIS itself have tools that will allow me to see this kind of information? If not, what else can I do to determine what (if anything) is still using NIS for authentication? I've tried doing packet captures (with one server deliberately still pointing to NIS) but could not discern the difference in the output.
