Slave NIS server configuration change

Hello Everybody,

I have a question regarding SLAVE NIS SERVER in aix.
We are using NIS master of Sun Solaris 9.0 which is on different subnet i.e. 10.197.93.0. And Our slave server is having AIX 5.3 installed which is on 10.207.13.0 subnet.

I have a query regarding its name and ip address change of Slave server only.

Due to our Local Area Network configuration changes i want to change its IP address and hostname also. Will it work as it is acting as a NIS slave server??????? My new IP range is starting from 10.192.20.0

Or i have to do some another changes with NIS Slave configuration on this slave server.????

I have serached on it but nothing found what precautions i have to take for this change of IP and Hostname.

Please help!!!!!!!!!!


Thanks in Advance

NAME
nissetup, ypsetup - Sets up the Network Information Service (NIS) environment SYNOPSIS
/usr/sbin/nissetup /usr/sbin/ypsetup DESCRIPTION
The nissetup (formerly ypsetup) script configures and runs NIS on your system. You can use nissetup to initially set up your NIS configura- tion, to change your current NIS configuration, or to remove your NIS configuration. NIS provides a distributed data lookup service for sharing data among networked systems. Before running nissetup, make sure that your system is connected to a local area network and that the network is configured and running. You must know the name of your NIS domain and your system's role in the domain (master server, slave server, or client). Security Note You invoke nissetup from the SysMan Menu. See sysman(8) for more information. When using the nissetup script to set up a NIS server that is running with enhanced security, you must answer yes to the question about locking the domain name and authorized servers (the ypbind -S option). If you are setting up a master server, the server is bound to itself (done by default). If you are setting up a slave server, the server is bound to itself done by default) and optionally to the master server and any other slave servers. If your system will be the master server for your NIS domain, be sure no other master exists for your domain and that the NIS database files are in the /var/yp/src directory. Note Remove the root entry, if it exists, from the passwd database file. If your system be will be a slave server or client, be sure a master server is already set up for your NIS domain. FILES
