I've setup NIS on Centos 5.3 following the fairly sketchy documentation online, it seems to be working pretty well, however whenever I run
ypcat passwd, either from the server or the client, no entries are ever returned.
There's definitely some entries in the /etc/passwd file on the server and I've run ypinit, as well as tried running
make in /var/yp to rebuild the database.
ypcat hosts works fine, I get the hosts file from the server, I don't get any errors in the log. Both machines are setup to in nsswitch.conf to read from NIS as well as files.
Any ideas why this wouldn't be working?
