Well, I only got one response but it was RIGHT ON THE MONEY!
Thanks to Rogerio, everything is working fine. I love how SUN doesn't
document everything...it must be a great skill to have. :-) ;-)

At the beginning of our NIS+ (w/ Solaris 2.1) we had problems with
part of the commands and found out that the sequence of commands like
this one ,
> /usr/lib/nis/nisping `nisdefaults -d`
> /usr/lib/nis/nisping org_dir.`nisdefaults -d`
> /usr/lib/nis/nisping groups_dir.`nisdefaults -d`
should be treated carefully , that is "check that one
command has already finished , before starting the next one".
One way to check is looking , via Snoop , at the NIS traffic ,
in our case Master to replica.
The above caution , which is written nowhere , was not obvious, even
to the SUN SW eng. that was installing it (or was it re-installing) ,
and was a last attempt after some nonsucessfull ones (2 to 4?), so
it ended up beeing a "feature not documented"
