Administrators have the ability to configure NIS to serve password data to outside processes to authenticate users using various versions of the Unix crypt(3) hash algorithms.
However, in such cases, NIS use client server architecture with one master server (and possibly one or several secondary slave servers, necessary for reliability) and many clients.
Here you can see where NIS entries were added for the important login files. Start the ypbind NIS client, and portmap daemons in the /etc/init.d directory and use the chkconfig command to ensure they start after the next reboot.
[y/n: y] y We need a few minutes to build the databases... There are a number of related configuration files that you need to edit to get it to work. The file that lists the order in which certain data sources should be searched for name lookups, such as those in DNS, LDAP, and NIS.This is because by default NFS activates the root squash feature, which disables this user from having privileged access to directories on remote NFS servers. You can now start the ypbind and the ypxfrd daemons because the NIS domain files have been created.You'll be able to test this later after NIS is configured. # rpcinfo -p localhost | egrep "port|yp|nfs" program vers proto port 100000 2 tcp 111 portmapper 100000 2 udp 111 portmapper 100003 nfs 100003 nfs 100021 nlockmgr 100021 nlockmgr 100021 nlockmgr 100004 2 udp 784 ypserv 100004 1 udp 784 ypserv 100004 2 tcp 787 ypserv 100004 1 tcp 787 ypserv 100009 1 udp 798 yppasswdd 600100069 1 udp 850 fypxfrd 600100069 1 tcp 852 fypxfrd 100007 2 udp 924 ypbind 100007 1 udp 924 ypbind 100007 2 tcp 927 ypbind 100007 1 tcp 927 ypbind # New NIS users can be created by logging into the NIS server and creating the new user account.Because British Telecom PLC owned the name "Yellow Pages" as a registered trademark in the United Kingdom for its paper-based, commercial telephone directory, Sun changed the name of its system to NIS, though all the commands and functions still start with "yp".A NIS/YP system maintains and distributes a central directory of user and group information, hostnames, e-mail aliases and other text-based tables of information in a computer network.
