ahh, okay, chances are good that one of two
things happened ...
- you have more than one IP addresses in the
physical server and you ypbind only gets
the wrong (first) address
(enable logging, search for timeouts)
- same as above, but either for routing
or for nfs (which results in the same
service timeout) nfs and/or portmap are
using the wrong ip ...
solution: use a v_portmap, v_ypbind, v_nfs
and make damn sure that they specifically use
the address you need ...
