Thank you Shovon, I will definitely look into ypxfr This will be my first time migrating an old NIS server to a new one. I am kind of nervous this migration. Thank you again for your help. Eric
Greeting, The lab I work for needs to replace the old NIS hardware server with a new server. What files do i need to copy/move over to the new NIS server? The new NIS server and NIS client will have a different IP , but same hostnames and the same domain name as the old NIS server. The only difference is the old NIS runs Ubuntu 16.04 and the new NIS server will run Ubuntu 18.04. The NIS clients is a mix of Ubuntu 16.04 and Ubuntu 18.04. Thank you in advance for your help.
