Sort of ...

Initially, I was facing similar issues as you.

domain <mydomain> broadcast
to /etc/yp.conf finally got NIS going again.

With FC < 11, this had not been required.

NetworkManager? I haven't systematically tested my setup with NM, but I have been observing several NIS breaksdowns related to NM, SELinux and gdm interacting.


Hi, I haven't followed all of this Thread but I can confirm NIS works for F11 here. My Particular config is SELinux Disabled (Note that with NIS there is a difference between disabled and permissive) and I believe I was seeing what you see when I was using NetworkManger to control networking when a system booted it couldn't bind to a ypserver until I logged in and restarted the service. I tried experimenting with when yp started and even added a line to rc.local to restart the service. This made no difference.

I then tried reverting to the network service rather than NetworkManager and things started working as I expected.

I hope this helps :)
