NIS slave problem


I cannot figure out what's going on here.

the usernames (including those from the NIS master), therefore causing
`ypmatch` to fail. However, all these commands return the desired results
when executed on the NIS master.

On the slave, portmap is up and running, the passwd file is set for YP
compatibility, the RPC services are uncommented (inetd.conf), and inetd
has been restarted. I've run `ypinit -u` on the NIS master and rebuilt the

Is there something I overlooked?
