SUMMARY; Clients Hang When Server ReBoots

Problem Was: Under SUNOS4.1.1 client systems hang after the server
is rebooted. The clients usually must be rebooted in order to recover.
The server is both the NIS master and NFS server and there is
no NIS slave.

Replies: There were many replies. The most-commonly suggested solution
was to install Patch# 100342-01. Many people had the same problem and
wanted to know a fix for it. One person whose network included an
NIS slave server also had the same problem.

Solution: We did install 100342-01 which Sun sent over the Internet
via mail in one day. The server has been rebooted once since the
patch was installed. New logins on client workstations still take
about two minutes for the first login after the server reboot - after
that, all is normal. NFS service continues ok without having to
reboot the client.
The patch is actually a new revision of ypbind, so it's pretty easy
to install and does *not* require rebuilding the kernel.

Thanks to all who responded. Reardon@HDS.Sinet.SLB.COM
