how does one list multiple NIS (failover) servers on the NIS client

Discussion in 'Linux Networking' started by Alexander N. Spitzer, Aug 15, 2004.

  1. in the sun world, you can run "ypinit -c" and list all the NIS servers
    that you would like the client to "fail to" when there is an issue. how
    do you do this in linux?

    i.e. on a sun machine, you can list
    localhost (setup as slave)
    <primary nis master 1>
    <primary nis master 2>
    <some other server>
    ....

    when the nis client comes up, it will bind to the first one in the list,
    if that eventually dies, it will bind to the next server in the list.. etc.
