Original POosting:

The majority response was to try ypcat -k to check on the keys.
I did that and everything looked normal.
What did end up working was I deleted the domainname directory under
/var/yp as well as all the *.time files and reran ypinit -m.

I had redone ypinit -m before, but that was without first deleting the
domainname directory under /var/yp.
