Failover time to slave nis server?

Discussion in 'Linux Networking' started by Mauricio Tavares, Oct 13, 2006.

  1. Let's say I have 3 linux boxes -- a nis master server, a slave server,
    and a client -- where everyone knows about both servers (even the
    ypservers map knows about them). Now, I pull the ethernet plug off the
    master server. How long should I wait until the client starts using the
    slave server? What would affect this time if they are all in the same
    room and connected to the same switch?
