I have an NIS server setup on a specific vlan. All my nis clients are
setup on separate vlans with different networks.
All of my clients have the same problem. When i run /etc/rc.d/ypbind
start then /etc/rc.d/ypset start, everything works properly.
However it will stop working for no apparent reason, and just timeout
until it is restarted.
Also If i make the server unavailable, then bring it back it has the
same affect. It is as if it fails once, and never retries the same
server. How can i fix this? Currently I have a cronjob set to restart
ypbind and ypset.
