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:

I cant help much as I gave up trying to make NIS behave itself a while back. Is this your home network?

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.
