Name        : ypserv
Product     : Fedora 20
Version     : 2.31
Release     : 5.fc20
URL         : http://www.linux-nis.org/nis/ypserv/index.html
Summary     : The NIS (Network Information Service) server
Description :
The Network Information Service (NIS) is a system that provides
network information (login names, passwords, home directories, group
information) to all of the machines on a network. NIS can allow users
to log in on any machine on the network, as long as the machine has
the NIS client programs running and the user's password is recorded in
the NIS passwd database. NIS was formerly known as Sun Yellow Pages

This package provides the NIS server, which will need to be running on
your network. NIS clients do not need to be running the server.

Install ypserv if you need an NIS server for your network. You also
need to install the yp-tools and ypbind packages on any NIS client

Update Information:

This is an update that fixes problems with non-existing maps and which uses system values for MINUID/MINGID.

  [ 1 ] Bug #1004110 - ypserv 2.31 with tcbdb returns no error if nis map does not exist
  [ 2 ] Bug #1004090 - /var/yp/Makefile: MINUID=500 MINGID=500 should be MINUID=1000 MINGID=1000

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update ypserv' at the command line.
