Hi Gurus:
        This is my summarize:
NIS+ problem: hosts table desapeared.
Server: E3500
Using: Solaris 7
Updates: Last cluster applied

0) Copy the /etc/hosts file to any empty directory using
   same name.
1) /usr/lib/nis/nispopulate -F -p /a/new/empty/dir -d \
2) Check the table using solstice, it is OK.

My original post:
> Hi all:
> After a hardware maintenance, only a hardware
> clean up, my NIS+'s hosts table is empty, users are there.
> I try to re-record a host and the server message is:
> host is already in the table.
> It is an E3500, Solaris 7, NIS+ default server, patches
> updated.
> Please, what can I do?
> I'm thinking to delete each host entry, would it be a

> Thanks in advance.
