[CentOS] NIS problems

if i'm understanding:
-you have a 32bit NIS server that you've
configured for your network.
-you are not running dns, but are instead using /etc/hosts,
and /etc/resolv.conf on your boxes
-you have a couple of 32bit clients that can attach to the
NIS server, and that you can log against. you can run
'ypcat passwd' on these machines with no issues..
-attaching a 64bit machine as a NIS Client which you've
configured as best you can, is giving you errors...
I just had a conversation with a Sr. Redhat Tech support eng, where he was
telling me that there might be an issue with my situation that might be
related to the fact that the server is 64 bit, and the slave is 32bit...
might not be related.... but hmm...
can you post your ypserv.conf, as well as your yp.conf files

Yep. This is on a small lan - /etc/hosts acts as local dns.
The error is the one when ypinit -s server hasn't been run. I've had two
successful runs on 32-bit C5 adding said 32-bit hosts to the network, but
this one 64-bit C5 system is giving me the NIS problems. I can ssh, ping,
and doing anything else I want. Again, the 32-bit hosts work fine against
the server. This one 64-bit machine is simply giving me the NIS
Thanks for any/all ideas.
