Choose a yp domain name for <your_yp_domainname> in the following. Dont make this the same as your IP domain name.
Edit /etc/yp.conf on every client machine you want to use it on (including the server), put:
domain <your_yp_domainname> server <servername>
On the server, edit /etc/ypserv.conf and add something like this:
# Host : Domain : Map : Security # 192.168.2. : <your_yp_domainname> : passwd.byname : port 192.168.2. : <your_yp_domainname> : passwd.byuid : port 192.168.2. : <your_yp_domainname> : passwd : port 192.168.2. : <your_yp_domainname> : group : port # Not everybody should see the shadow passwords, not secure, since # under MSDOG everbody is root and can access ports < 1024 !!! 192.168.2. : <your_yp_domainname> : shadow.byname : port 192.168.2. : <your_yp_domainname> : passwd.adjunct.byname : port
On the server go to /var/yp, and edit the Makefile, take out the maps you dont want to export in 'all' category, mine looks like this:
all: passwd group hosts rpc services netid protocols mail \ # netgrp shadow publickey networks ethers bootparams printcap \ # amd.home auto.master auto.home auto.local passwd.adjunct \ # timezone locale netmasks
Start the ypserv process with:
service ypserv start
service yppasswd start
Still on the server, start the yp client with:
service ypbind start
and test that it's all working with:
you should see the maps for groups and passwords.
Go to the client, and start up the ypbind service with:
service ypbind start
and test again. All should now be working. Use yppasswd on any machine to change a user password, and dont forget to add the various yp services to the runlevels of each machine.Linux user #126863 - see http://linuxcounter.net/
