Thanks to Matt !!!
the answer is :
To get this going I had to do the following:
ON your solaris nis server - it has to be running in
YP compatibility mode! There is a line in /etc/rc2.d/S71rpc
uncomment the line: "EMULYP="-Y""
or it won't work.
On the SunOS box, /etc/rc.local, I then do a :
/usr/etc/yp/ypset <your nis host ip>
this list is priceless !!!!
