I have two linux NIS servers, let's call them master and slave.
master is a NIS master
and slave is a NIS slave (surprise!)

I did a ypinit on slave to master and I have slave working correctly as a NIS server - problem is that master binds to slave sometimes and to itself sometimes, regardless of what I have in my /etc/yp.conf. When master binds to slave, slave won't receive updates via yppush or ypxfr since it believes the maps are up to date (even after running make).

Here's my yp.conf for master and slave:
domain lab.com server localhost
ypwhich -m
reports the maps and relationships correctly...

Any ideas?
