Solaris 2.4 with NIS+
o /etc/protocols file is fine, and it is from Solaris 2.4 CD.
o The problems are:
- protocols.org_dir NIS+ map was not populated with /etc/protocols, and
- /etc/nsswitch.conf or /etc/nsswitch.nisplus has
protocols: nisplus [NOTFOUND=return] files
o Solutions can be:
- Popluate /etc/protocols into protocols.org_dir NIS+ Map, or
- Modify /etc/nsswitch.conf for NIS+ to say
protocols: nisplus files
I can now run "rdate $HOST" now.
Again, thank you for all your inputs and suggestions.
Have a great weekend!
