KB-0407: automount NFS with NIS not working after upgrade

Automount NFS with NIS is not working after upgrade


Uninstalling the earlier version of DirectControl before installing the new release of DirectControl wiped out the old configurations that were in place in /etc/centrifydc/centrifydc.conf.

As a result, the line nisd.securenets: was removed and no remote NIS clients would be able to access the NIS (adnisd) server except localhost.


Edit the following line in centrifydc.conf:

    nisd.securenets: 0/0

This allows everybody to connect to the adnisd and use it as a NIS server. The AD zone name must be the same as the NIS domain, and it will only serve the maps it has.
