Description

Pretty simple NIS client module.

Sets up a NIS client via ypbind/yp.conf, for either a broadcast domain, or list of servers specifically. Does NOT modify nsswitch/authconfig/pam/etc. This JUST sets up NIS. Making your auth' stack use it is up to you.

  • ypbind package
  • ypbind service
  • /etc/yp.conf

Beginning with nis

puppet module install sjoeboo-nis

Reference

package: String Package name to manage Default 'ypbind'

domain: String NIS domain to join/use, Default 'nis'

servers: Array NIS servers to use if not using a broadcast domain Default []

Limitations

This is fairly Redhat (family, ie CentOS, etc) sepecific, though, basic. PR's welcome!
