Re: ypbind init script fails

I'm running FC6 on an eMachines laptop. I'm trying to configure NIS for my growing home network. I seem to be having peculiar problems with the ypbind init script. When I try to start the init script, it fails:

[root proteus ~]# /etc/rc.d/init.d/ypbind start
Starting NIS service:                                      [  OK  ]
Binding  NIS service: .........                            [FAILED]
Shutting down NIS service:                                 [  OK  ]

However, I find that if I run the init script with the restart option, it will often, but not always, succeed:

[root proteus run]# /etc/rc.d/init.d/ypbind restart
Shutting down NIS service:                                 [FAILED]
Starting NIS service:                                      [  OK  ]
Binding  NIS service: ...                                  [  OK  ]

If I start ypbind by itself from a command line, it always succeeds. I verify the successes and failures with ps, ypwhich and ypcat commands.

Anyone have a clue as to what is going on here? I've been looking for some indication in some log, but haven't found any. The goal is to get the init script to succeed on boot up. (The init script gives the same messages at bootup as it does when run with "start" from the command
line.)

Thanks!

   Try chkconfig ypbind on and when you reboot it will be on and stay on.

I chkconfig'ed it on at the start of all this. The problem seems to lie in the init script itself. As I noted, the init script fails at boot and when I run it from the command line with the "start" option.

Any idea how I can figure out what is happening in the init script? I can't find any indication in any log files and when I tried stepping through the commands on the command line, they all seemed to work.
