    nis problem

    hi every 1

    1) my nis-server and nis-client works properly. ypbind at client detects the nis-server also. yp.conf,network files all r fully configured in client and server both. "ypcat passwd" also displays the user info in both client & server.
    But when I create any new user at nis-server,I can get user-info by running "ypcat passwd" only when then I execute make command in /var/yp or
    "ypinit -m" in /lib/usr/yp folder AGAIN.

    I want to know that IS it Required to execute MAKE COMMAND AGAIN & AGAIN When
    any New User Created ?

    I search various web-sites, but I cann't find this.

    so, pls. help me.

    Thanking you !

    Yes it is required to run make because it has to update the maps files on the master. I wrote a wrapper for useradd which does that after adding users.
