Error NIS Configuration Help

I have a Solaris 5.5 with NIS set-up. My plan is to change IP address. I used the ifconfig command to change IP and updated the /etc/hosts file, the problem is that ypmake command is not yet available with Solaris 5.5 and I don't know how I can update my NIS map. ypcat hosts still shows my old IP address. Smilie

Another thing, how can I delete users under NIS. Smilie

Please help this is urgent. Smilie

Try "cd /var/yp ; make"

Not sure if that will work on Solaris 5...

Question not applicable

We've tried it already but it ask for arguments... Can we just edit some configuration files? We tried to man make to have a guide, but seems to it that this command requires many arguments. But still if we can find a way to update the NIS Maps beside the make command of yp it would be better.

Thank you as always!
