If the above commands do not make it clear what your problem is, you might want to consult the NIS files.If a NIS server is doing something incorrect during map distribution, you should look at the /var/yp/Makefile on the NIS server.A: Because the netid was not distributed, the groups map does not have all the correct info.
Login to the master server and start it: # ypxfrd Q: Why does yppush refuse to transfer my brand new map when I do a make?
Q: Why do I get the following errors when making the netgroup map: "entry too big, problem storing netgroup" "error code 1" A: netgroup maps have a maximum of 200 entries, or 1024 characters per line.
You will get the above errors if you have a netgroup larger than this.
You can verify this by running 'ypwhich' you will see that you are not currently bound to a NIS domain.
Try following the procedure in Section 3.2 precisely.
