Thanks to Brett Lymn, Matthew Stier, Daniel Polombo, Timothy Peterman, and
David Foster for their replied email (I hope I don't miss anyone).
Brett reminded me of /var/yp/securenets, and I need to remove it in all of
my slave servers (My co-worker put this security feature (he left the company),
and I will re-enable it later). It was back to normal on Sunday afternoon
before users coming back to work on monday :).
