Question: Replica server downs for a period of time.

Solution: I rebooted main root server, so all workstation clients can
authenticate with it, instead of the replica. Then reinstall OS on replica
server as a client of NIS+, with SAME IP address, SAME hostname and SAME
root password. Then, restart rpc.nisd daemon, the do nisping to populate
NIS+ database to replica server.

This can only be done, if we do not need to completely remove replica server
from NIS+, and reinstall a brand new one.
