I have a cluster running Rh 7.3 with NIS server. The cluster was running
fine. But suddenly after rebooting now the clients are having problems in
recognizing the NIS domain server name. while booting the clients it says:

Binding to the NIS domain: [OK]
Listening for an NIS domail server............[FAILED]

ypwhich on clients says 'Can't communicate with ypbind'

ypbind, ypserv are running fine on the server.

I will appreciate if anyone can help..
