Making the Centrify NIS server available

After you install and configure adnisd on a computer, you must configure other computers or devices on the network to use the computer running adnisd for NIS client requests.

In general, configuring NIS clients to use the Centrify Network Information Service involves:

  • Stopping any existing legacy NIS server processes.
  • Modifying the NIS client’s configuration file to identify the zone and computer name of the computer where the adnisd process is installed.
  • Sending a bind request from the NIS client to the new Centrify NIS server.
