On my system, the entry which directs the server to load the NIS server plugin is "cn=NIS Server". If you set things up using the tools provided, I'd have expected yours to look the same, so I can't be sure you're editing the right entry. Can you paste the LDIF for it? > Do you happen to have a copy of your LDIF configuration file with the > relevant configuration by any chance? That could come in handy. The relevant section in the server's dse.ldif (and as Rich reiterated, if you plan on editing the file directly, the server must be stopped while you edit it) on my system looks like this: dn: cn=NIS Server,cn=plugins,cn=config nsslapd-pluginId: nis-plugin cn: NIS Server nis-tcp-wrappers-name: nis-server objectClass: top objectClass: nsSlapdPlugin objectClass: extensibleObject nsslapd-pluginDescription: NIS Server Plugin nsslapd-pluginEnabled: on nsslapd-pluginPath: /usr/lib64/dirsrv/plugins/nisserver-plugin.so nsslapd-pluginVersion: 0.26 nsslapd-pluginVendor: redhat.com nsslapd-pluginType: object nsslapd-pluginInitfunc: nis_plugin_init creatorsName: cn=directory manager modifiersName: cn=directory manager createTimestamp: 20111115001037Z modifyTimestamp: 20111115001204Z nsslapd-pluginarg0: 541 numSubordinates: 6 HTH, Nalin _______________________________________________ Freeipa-users mailing list Freeipaemail@example.com https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/freeipa-users
