Domain Name


Hi,

I have an installation of RHAS2.1. The DNS has been configured with Domain name "Sagar.com".

Executing Command "dnsdomainname" shows correct domain name i.e "sagar.com" while command "domainname" shows "none". This may be because, the command "domainname" shows nis domain name while the "dnsdomaindname" command shows configured domain name.

Can anyone let me know how to configure nis domain name so that executing "domainname" shows "sagar.com"

With Regards
Pranav

1. make sure you have nis rpms installed.
2. make sure ypbind, ypserv, (yppasswdd for adding users) is running. Those are nis processes.
ex: you can start them up (as root) with following commands:
a) service ypbind start
b) service ypserv start
etc...
3. Issue command to initialize domainname for nis server. (as root)
a) # domainname <name>
without the '<>'
4. Initialize nis server (as root)
a) # /usr/sbin/ypinit -m
Note: Path maybe different on your system use "locate ypinit" to find executabe file.


Cheers!!!
