Last updated on: 2011-06-29
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)

Details

An updated ypbind package that fixes a bug is now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

The ypbind package provides an NIS (Network Information Services) daemon which
binds NIS clients to an NIS domain.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Each NIS client can bind to different NIS servers, but can only be bound to
one server at a time. To maintain its connection to a server, an NIS client
checks connection to an active server every 20 seconds and once in a while tries
to find the fastest available server. Previously, clients searched for the
fastest server every minute, which sometimes caused heavy traffic and response
delays. With this update, clients search for the fastest server every 15
minutes, preventing this bug. (BZ#714028)

All users of ypbind are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes
this bug.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via Red Hat Network. Details on how to use the Red
