OpenSUSE 42.2 - ypbind failure preventing GUI from starting


Hi,

So anybody else noticed this yet? If the NIS server (doesn't matter if master of slave) is down or cannot be reached, GUI just fails to load.

Why is that?

Code:
YPBINDPROC_DOMAIN: Domain not bound
YPBINDPROC_DOMAIN: Domain not bound
YPBINDPROC_DOMAIN: Domain not bound
Code:
desktop:~ # systemctl status ypbind
● ypbind.service - NIS/YP Clients to NIS Domain Binder
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/ypbind.service; enabled; vendor preset: disabled)
   Active: active (running) since Sat 2016-12-10 01:20:31 PHT; 6min ago
     Docs: man:ypbind(8)
  Process: 2179 ExecStartPost=/usr/lib/ypbind/ypbind-systemd-post (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
  Process: 2165 ExecStartPre=/usr/lib/ypbind/ypbind-systemd-pre (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
 Main PID: 2175 (ypbind)
   Status: "Processing requests..."
    Tasks: 3 (limit: 512)
   CGroup: /system.slice/ypbind.service
           └─2175 /usr/sbin/ypbind -n
