Question SUSE 9 and 10 NIS clients with RedHat 8.0 NIS server not working

We have a RedHat 8.0 NIS master, with a RedHat 8.0 NIS Slave.

We also have a small number of SUSE 9.1 and SUSE 10 machines here for evaluation.

However, no matter what i do, the SUSE machines will not talk to the NIS Servers.

If i broadcast for NIS Servers for the specified NIS domain, it picks them up perfectly, but if i then say "OK, use these servers", the NIS client just times out, as if the NIS Servers don't exist any more. They do exist though, because the rest of the network is using them perfectly.

I thought that SUSE could be using NIS+ instead of NIS, but it's not labelled as NIS+, so i'm not sure if this is the case.

Does anyone have any ideas??

Thanks in advance Smilie

It sounds like the SUSE servers and Redhat servers are on two different networks. Setting up in broadcast mode is not normally recommended due to security concerns. Try searching on SUSE knowledge base for NIS and any error code you may have gotten.
