SUMMARY: NIS out of date on slave server, Yet /var/yp/`domain' files correct.

A while ago I asked how I could have NIS data out of date yet the
/var/yp/`domain' files be correct. It turns out that the old sun3 yp
slave server, which I had thought was off the network permanently, was
up. This meant that it had old /var/yp/`domain' files and was the one
providing the old data.

MORAL: Don't always assume that dead yp slave servers are indeed dead.

Thanks to the following for offering help:
