Look you say above the nisserver is 10.172.52.22
So why do you have server 10.172.52.39 in you yp.conf file?
As I said before it looks to em that the content of the yp.conf file
is not consistant with the format of information that you see in
comments in that file as I said in the comment just below this. Blow I
ask you a number of questions about what you are doing and received no
answer. .
