Thanks for the prompt responses. As suggested, the culprit was patch
104468-06 not installed. After installing this patch it runs smooth.

Thanks again.

Here is the original problem :

Hi Sun-Managers,

I am using SparcStation 5, with Solaris 2.6 and reccommended
patches installed. I have installed Adminsuite 2.3 from the
CDROM as explained in the document in the CD itself.

I have configured the workstation as NIS+ root master server
using scripts as follows:
Given the root domainname as

# domainname
# domainname > /etc/defaultdomain

# nisserver -r -d

And then

# nispopulate -F -p /nis+files -d Where "/nis+files"

contain the copied files from "/etc".

Everything is smooth upto this point.

Now, the problem is when I run "solstice " and select a program like
"usrmgr" (or any other), it shows the NIS+ domain as "" , and
proceeding further it pops up error message " '' is not a valid
NIS+ domain". Therefore I have no access to any tables in the NIS+.
I have gone through all FAQs and Documents I could get hold off.

Can somebody help me where I am missing something.

Many thanks in advance.
