ypcat 'works' in the sense that it displays information, but the
information it displays is old, and not synchronous with the master
server. This is only the case for master.passwd, however. ypcat
passwd shows the correct information (thus things that use passwd
rather than master.passwd; ie finger work fine). Because of this,
there really is no error message to include.
Hope that is more specific, and I appreciate your assistance.
