Original Post:
After adding a yp slave to a long existing NIS domain I now get 2 entrys
when i do a ypcat hosts | grep slave-server. doing the same thing for older
slaves returns dup entries for them as well, sometimes 4 entries for 1
server. the slaves work fine. is this normal? is it actually finding it
in two places? any insight would be helpful.


My inexperience with NIS is showing. ypcat is returning an entry for every
alias. a ypcat -k shows what is going on. thanks to all.
