I found a problem. I was initializing the yp master server with
domainname set to math.uic. (not the '.' at the end).
This doesn't work! I did a truss on ypserv process, it was trying
to open /var/yp/math.uic/ypservers file (note there is no dot here).
After reinitializing yp master with domainname set to "math.uic"
things worked ok.
Thanks for all who replied! I honestly don't see how anyone could find
an answer from the information I had provided.
