server1 has been set up as a yp master server with errors.  Please remember
to figure out what went wrong, and fix it.
If there are running slave yp servers, run yppush now for any data bases
which have been changed.  If there are no running slaves, run ypinit on
those hosts which are to be slave servers.
Thanks in advance
