    Hi,
    I have a RH9 box running in a network with Window$ printserver, so I use samba.
    From time to time, I get printing errors when I'm trying to print from Acrobat Reader- ypcat errors, claiming that it can't find domain aso. I have to run
    ypcat domain server aso,
    printing runs after, but still I get error message from ypcat.
    Anyone had before this type of problems and knows how to fix it?
    :rolleyes:

    So, printing works most of the time, but fails some times?

    Whiteskin, printing works (almost) perfect, but ypcat complains that the yp domain is not set.
    I checked /etc/hosts and it's OK.

    I'll tell you how the problem was solved: set the default printsystem to CUPS. That has got rid of the "ypcat: can't get local yp domain: Local domain name not set" error.
