The configuration of the NIS server is not difficult, but requires many steps that you may overlook. This procedure makes all NIS-enabled, nonprivileged accounts become automatically accessible via NIS, not just newly created ones.
There also multiple daemons that all needs to be started in particular order NIS servers also have to be NIS clients themselves, so you'll have to edit the NIS client configuration file /etc/to list the domain's NIS server as being the server itself or localhost. It also exports all the user's characteristics stored in the /etc/passwd and /etc/group files, such as the login shell, the user's group, and home directory.
Now that you have decided on the name of the NIS domain, you'll have to use the ypinit command to create the associated authentication files for the domain. # cd /var/yp [[email protected]]# make gmake: Entering directory `/var/yp/NISDOMAIN' Updating passwd.byname... Unlike ypmatch, getent doesn't provide an encrypted password when run on an NIS server, it just provides the user's entry in the /etc/passwd file.
You will be prompted for the name of the NIS server, which in this case is master. On a NIS client, the results are identical with both showing the encrypted password.
There are two ways to upgrade the firmware on DELL Equal Logic SAN’s.
You can upgrade the firmware via the web-based java GUI console or the traditional command line / putty.
With this procedure, # /usr/lib/yp/ypinit -m At this point, we have to construct a list of the hosts which will run NIS servers. Please continue to add the names for the other hosts, one per line. next host to add: master next host to add: The current list of NIS servers looks like this: master Is this correct? gmake: Entering directory `/var/yp/NISDOMAIN' Updating passwd.byname... Now that the NIS server is configured, it's time to configure the NIS clients.
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.
Normally I tend to hold off upgrading SAN firmware until it’s been out at least 6 months.
I always tend to check the fix list and see if it’s applicable.
Saying this, not one firmware upgrade has caused us problems so far.
We bought some more storage recently and the SAN’s weren’t on the correct firmware. extension) Url: 2) Next open a web browser (IE8 or IE9) and type in the address of your group. (Enter) 3) One option is to highlight the member SAN and select the “Maintenance” tab on the right hand side.
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.
