No worries.
We have a couple of older clients on our network that consist of RHEL 4.3, RHEL 
5.3, RHEL 5.5, Solaris 7, Solaris 8, and Solaris 10.
Unfortunately I won't be able to get rid of those machines for the next year or 
so.
I figured for those older clients it would just be easier to have them all go 
through NIS. I had it working for a good year and then it just stopped.

Ok. Just curious - why are you running Nis on Linux where we have native client 
available?
Sorry for this OT question.

Ypinit -c does not exist for Linux. At least from what I can see.
It looks like it's a server issue.

It seems when I try to initialize NIS (through ypserv and ypbind) on the 
Primary and Secondary IPA servers it does not know to check IPA for the user 
information.

Maybe I'm wrong but are the ipa-nis-manage and ipa-compat-manage commands not 
used to enable the NIS compatibility mode?

Did you try tu run ypinit -c ?
Not sure now - it might be necessary to initialize the Nis subsystem.

So looking at NIS documentation I noticed my /var/yp folder did not have the 
same folders/files as it should.
It should have a Makefile, nicknames, binding (folder) and mydomainname (folder)

I created a folder which matched my domainname and ypbind was finally able to 
start. But I can't do a ypcat since it can't find the maps which I would assume 
live under that domainname folder.

Any ideas?

I forgot to show my current configuration.

Yp.conf
-----------------
Domain mydomain.ca server primaryIPA
Domain mydomain.ca server secondaryIPA

/etc/sysconfig/network
-------------------
NISDOMAIN=mydomain.ca

Nsswitch.conf
-----------------------
has "nis" added for passwd/group/automount

I've been trying different combinations of adding the nsslapd-pluginarg0: 1023 
and running ypserv on the same port.
Should nsslapd and ypserv be running on the same port when I do the netstat 
command?

You can use command
netstat -lpn (as root)
and check if the process is listening on the correct port and interface.
