Thanks to all tat responded.
My original question:
# ping jafar
ping: unknown host jafar
A ping to an IP address works fine. I am not familiar with NIS+
and I am suspecting that this system was erroneously setup for
NIS+. How do I test for this and if so how do I change it
back to regular NIS?
The correct answer from firstname.lastname@example.org:
If you need files only, chage this to /etc/nsswitch.files ->
if nis, /etc/nsswitch.nis -> /etc/nsswitch.conf
if nis+, /etc/nsswitch.nisplus -> /etc/nsswitch.conf
This list is great!
