Problem in communication nim client with nim master

Hello, I have an AIX6.1 machine which is a nim client to my nim master which is also AIX6.1 machine. I had some problem to perform an installation on my client using
 smit nim

. i removed /etc/niminfo file in order to do the initialization again but when i run the command
 niminit -a name=client -a master=master -a connect=nimsh

i get the following error message: "0042-006 niminit: (init to master) rcmd A remote host refused an attempted connect operation." any idea what could be the problem? Thank you

forget about the previous post. i find the problem. it was the nimesis daemon that wasnt active on my NIM master. i run the command
 lssrc -g nim

and i get the result: Subsystem Group PID Status nimesis nim inoperative i started the subsystem
 startsrc -g nim

and now the problem is solved

       ypsetup - set up the yellow pages (YP) environment


       A  local  area  network	must  be  set  up on your system before you can set up YP.  You must know your system's default YP domain name and
       whether your system will be a master server, slave server, or client.  If your system is to be the master server for  your  YP  domain,	be
       sure  no  other master has been established and be sure the files to be distributed are in the directory Note that the files to be distrib-
       uted should be modified from the original files by removing the root entry in the file.

       If your system is not to be the master server, be sure a master already exists for your YP domain.  Once you  know  this  information,  run
       with the system in multiuser mode and answer its questions.

       Once  YP  is installed on a machine, it cannot be used until the file is modified to contain YP entries on the desired database lines.  The
       command reminds a user to run or edit the file manually.
