SUMMARY: Remnants of NIS+

From: Mike Battersby (

The original request was:

> After trialling NIS+ and having removed all traces of it I could find
> from my system, I still get the following messages in syslog when user
> lookups are done:
> triton syslog: user2netname: (nis+ lookup): NIS+ servers unreachable
> What have I neglected to do in my NIS+ removal?

To which the answers were:

     1) make sure you remove all 'nisplus' entries from /etc/nsswitch.conf.
     2) make sure you remove the /var/nis/`uname -a` directory
     3) make sure you remove /etc/.rootkey

Another helpful suggestion from <> was to put a
'set -x' line at the top of /etc/init.d/rpc and watch at boot to see if
any NIS+ daemons are being started.
