All of the IPA services are running.
When I tried running the ipa-compat-manage enable and ipa-nis-manage enable 
they are both loaded and running.
The firewall is not the issue, I am positive about that.

What do you mean by looking at the compat tree from the IPA server?

I've recently had to restart my IPA servers and my NIS compatibility mode has

I've configured my IPA server to run in NIS compatibility mode by doing the 
[root@ipaserver ~]# ipa-nis-manage enable
[root@ipaserver ~]# ipa-compat-manage enable
Restart the DNS and Directory Server service:
[root@server ~]# service restart rpcbind
[root@server ~]# service restart dirsrv
On my NIS clients I have the following setup in the yp.conf file.
domain                 domainname.ca               server                   

I tried just running the broadcast option but with no luck.

When I try to do a service ypbind start on my NIS clients it takes a few 
minutes to finally fail.
When I tried an yptest says "Can't communicate with ypbind" which makes sense 
since ypbind will not start.

On the NIS client in the messages file it says the following;
Ypbind: broadcast: RPC: Timed Out
Cannot bind UDP: Address already in use

Nothing has changed on my IPA server/configuration so I have no idea why this 
stopped working.
Any suggestions?

Please check if the IPA is running, the DS is running. Check the logs that the 
compat plugin is loaded and working.
You can also try looking at the compat tree from the server itself to verify 
that the plugin, at least the DS part is functional.

This generally smells as a firewall issue but I have not way to prove or 
disprove the theory.
