I cannot believe the answer to this one! Sorry.

         The Solution:
                 2.6 changes the nsswitch.conf file when you set up a diskless
client and points it to nis. I never checked that before I posted because I
knew I did not change it. I assumed since I did not change it - it would point
to files. I know never assume! Thanks everyone!
         My original question:
         I have a quick question. I have a number of diskless clients in my
environment. Everything worked fine until I upgraded to Solaris 2.5.1 -11/97
and then to 2.6. (It broke with 2.5.1 -11/97 and stayed broke with 2.6) When I
try to boot the client I get the following message:
        syslog service starting
        syslog line 24: unexpected getnetconfig failure
        Date Time sun4m-26-1 sendmail [322] : NOQUEUE: SYSERR(root): NIS map
        byname specified, but NIS not running
        Date Time sun4m-26-1: Not Enough space
        Date Time sendmail [322] :NOQUEUE : SYSERR(root): NIS map mail.aliases
        specified but NIS not running
        volume management starting
        The system is ready
        I am not running NIS or sendmail and I never have. I have done a couple
bug searches and not found anything refering to this message. Any help would be
greatly appreciated.
