Thread: NIS server error

  1. #1

    NIS server error


    How do I stop the system from looking for an NIS server? When I start the computer I get: rpcinfo can't contact port mapper returns system error no route to host.

    I'm using RH 9.0

    Try commenting out the server address in /etc/yp.conf

    No route to host messages usually signify a routing problem, the remote network doesn't exist, the routes on the server are bad, the NIC cable is unplugged. If you want NIS to continue to work, try checking those things.

    If you need to stop NIS altogether, then use the "service" commands.

    Try for more help on NIS.

    Hope this helps.
