Re: Fedora 10 ypbind error

Hi Dave,

I think you are correct, the "invalid source port" is indeed unrelated.

You're not very specific. I am guessing that NIS is not working? Can you nudge it into making more error
messages, maybe execute 'ypcat passwd'? Result of '/etc/init.d/ypbind status'?

# /etc/init.d/ypbind start
SIOCADDRT: File exists
Starting NIS service:                                      [  OK  ]
Binding NIS service: ...............                       [  OK  ]

# ypcat passwd
No such map passwd.byname. Reason: Can't bind to server which serves this domain

Q1: network up before starting NIS? (watch out for NetworkMangler^H^H^H^Hager starting only after someone logs in.)
Q2: can you ping the NIS server or its backups?
Q3: portmapper running?
chkconfig --list portmap

another command to add to your yp test suite: ypwhich

Please keep us posted... some of us still have to deal with that system a bit longer.
