Summary: error message of yp updating

Date: Thu Dec 12 1996 - 05:01:30 CST


Thanks to

Daniel Lorenzini <> and (Brett Lymn)

I finally solved the problem by:

1) ypcat -k ypservers > /tmp/ypservers
2) editor /tmp/ypservers to fix the bad entry
3) cd /var/yp
4) cat /tmp/ypservers|makedbm - /var/yp/`domainname`/ypservers

Thanks a lot.
