Problem while setting NIS master on Solaris 10

Hi All,

I get below error while running
cd /var/yp
/usr/sbin/ypinit -m

Error Code - 1
updated netmasks
make : warning : target all not remade because of errors
current working dir /var/yp
*** error code 1 ***
make : fatal error : command failed for target 'k'
error running makefile

Please suggest to get rid of this.

Suggest you look for "k" in the makefile and make sure it does not belong to a previous or next line otherwise reinstall the makefile.

Request everyone to look into this. The same error appears when I tried configuring master on newly installed OS (Solaris 10).

Might just be a harmless warning but you didn't not post the relevant lines.

Are NIS tables created ?
Is the nis server functional ?

Maps (database) is being created. But I will have to check if it functional. I will just try to post the other asked info by jlliagre.
