12. Surviving a Reboot

Once you have NIS correctly configured on the server and client, you do need to be sure that the configuration will survive a reboot.

There are two separate issues to check: the existence of an init script and the correct storage of the NIS domain name.

12.1. NIS Init Script

In your version of Linux, you need to check your directory of init scripts, typically /etc/init.d, /etc/rc.d/init.d or /sbin/init.d to be sure there is a startup script there for NIS. Usually this file is called ypbind or ypclient.
