I have not done those steps. I did not see any of those in the doc anywhere!?
I do not seem to have "ipa-nis-manage" command on this machine.
Seems like I'm missing a basic step somewhere.
I know I'm serving NIS with this server as I'm able to bind a client and:
[r...@fcds tmp]# rpcinfo -p
program vers proto port service
100000 4 tcp 111 portmapper
100000 3 tcp 111 portmapper
100000 2 tcp 111 portmapper
100000 4 udp 111 portmapper
100000 3 udp 111 portmapper
100000 2 udp 111 portmapper
100024 1 udp 44690 status
100024 1 tcp 45670 status
100004 2 tcp 671 ypserv
100004 2 udp 671 ypserv

have you enabled the IPA nis plug in? By default, this plug-in is
disabled. To enable it, do following on ipa server
1. kinit admin
2. ipa-compat-manage enable -y <plain text password file>
3. ipa-nis-manage enable -y <plain text password file>
4. service dirsrv restart
where the password file contains plain text password of "admin"
and dirsrv is the backend DB for ipa
