Hello,
I work with a debian (testing version) and today a strange thing
occure :
I haven't do anything with nis but I can't connect my client machine
on the server.

After an hour of searching answer I did
dpkg-reconfigure nis
>> tarting NIS services: ypbind


and all was ready.

But when I reboot I must do the same thing again.


my boot log is : (I thing nothing goes really wrong)
