Six days ago, I posted this inquiry:

We are running C2 *without* NIS. The answer to our particular problem
is [insert foot in mouth]: the problem machine had been set up to be
a primary DNS server, and a set of changes that had been made on our
other primary (including the problem machine's own DNS entry), hadn't
gotten propogated to the problem machine. So, the problem machine
couldn't look itself up. Definitely uncool.

The two suggestions most frequently offered in response to this problem

1. Get the C2 jumbo patch (100564-05), which replaces the rpc.yppasswdd
and rpc.pwdauthd daemons. It is required at many installations to make
C2 work right under 4.1.2.

2. Make sure the "AUpwdauthd" and "AUyppasswdd" pseudo-users are present
in /etc/passwd and /etc/security/passwd.adjunct.
