process crashes almost immediately and does not
stay up even with repeated activations, the debug process is virtually
identical to that previously described in
Check for the existence of the
daemon on the server as follows:
ps -eaf | grep rpcbind
Start rpcbind if you do not find the daemon.
If it is there, enter:
rpcinfo yp_server | grep ypserv
and look for output similar to the following:
100004 2 tcp 0.0.0.0.12.168 ypserv superuser 100004 2 udp 0.0.0.0.4.8 ypserv superuser 100004 2 ticlts B 00 00 00 ypserv superuser 100004 2 ticots 06 00 00 00 ypserv superuser 100004 2 ticotsord 06 00 00 00 ypserv superuserYour machine will have different port numbers. As in the case of ypbind, there should be one entry per transport. If a transport is missing, ypserv has been unable to register its services with it. Stop and start NIS using sh /etc/inid.d/nis stop and sh /etc/inid.d/nis start, and then run rpcinfo again. If ypserv is still unable to register over one or more transports, reboot the machine.
