[root@server-rhel6 ~]# yum install rpcbind ypserv ypbind -y

[root@server-rhel6 ~]# vim /etc/sysconfig/network

[root@server-rhel6 ~]# rpcinfo -u localhost ypserv
rpcinfo: RPC: Port mapper failure – Unable to receive: errno 111 (Connection refused)
program 100004 is not available

[root@server-rhel6 ~]# /usr/lib64/yp/ypinit -m

At this point, we have to construct a list of the hosts which will run NIS
servers.  server-rhel6 is in the list of NIS server hosts.  Please continue to add
the names for the other hosts, one per line.  When you are done with the
list, type a <control D>.
next host to add:  server-rhel6
next host to add:
The current list of NIS servers looks like this:


Is this correct?  [y/n: y]  y
We need a few minutes to build the databases…
Building /var/yp/(none)/ypservers…
Running /var/yp/Makefile…
Domain name cannot be (none)

server-rhel6 has been set up as a NIS master server.

Now you can run ypinit -s server-rhel6 on all slave server.
