    Too many years ago to recall details, I set up NIS (aka yellowpages) on SunOS 4.something for a two host YP master/slave setup. If the SunOS installation instructions didn't tell me where to start, I may have read what “man -k nis” or “man -k yp” found me. Or maybe I used one of the following books...

    I remember having a copy of Managing NFS and NIS, and I might have used that for YP at some point. I think it covers everything you’d need to setup or use NIS/YP, but it’s not concise. http://dbmanagement.info/Books/Other...nd_Edition.pdf

    UNIX and Linux System Administration Handbook, 4th edition has a little on NIS. The third edition (the one I started with) may have had more on NIS/YP, but my printed copy is buried somewhere and I can’t find an online copy. The 4th edition can be found at: https://doc.lagout.org/operating%20s...20Handbook.pdf

    By the 5th of UNIX and Linux System Administration Handbook, there’s nothing left about NIS/YP other than a recommendation to stop using it. http://io.yaht.net/~lisp/9780134278285.pdf

    Essential System Administration, 3rd edition doesn’t say much on NIS/YP other than “see Managing NFS and NIS”. I used to have an older edition of this and maybe it said more on NIS/YP. It's a nice reference to have even if it says little on this topic. https://doc.lagout.org/operating%20s...nistration.pdf

    The steps I use for getting YP DNS up on Solbourne OS/MP are here, which should work for SunOS 4.1.x as well. Scroll down to "How do I get OS/MP networked?"

    You will probably want to scroll down further on that page and also check out the precompiled SunOS binaries on the floodgap gopher server (gopher://gopher.floodgap.com:70/arch...olbourne-os-mp) as well as the ones at http://www.synack.net/~bbraun/sunos4/. I've not touched gopher for more than a couple of decades, but I found it well worth my time to find a gopher browser and download a copy of all the SunOS stuff at floodgap.

    I'll walk over to the server in the other room and do that.

    Thank you for all of those! They were a great early Christmas present for me.

    And everyone who isn't you and is interested in SunOS 4 should take a look at all that you're sharing, including what you have on gopher.
