Part Number

  1. Navigate to Network Configuration > NIS/LDAP Configuration.
  2. Click add.
  3. Modify the settings as described in the table below.
    Field / Item Description
    Server IP address Enter the IP address of the new NIS server which can satisfy NIS queries.

    Enter the priority level for the selected NIS server (lowest value is highest priority). If the NIS domain contains multiple servers, the system attempts to bind to the server with the highest priority level whenever it performs a rebind check.

    Note: Servers discovered by broadcast do not have a priority. If the Administrator assigns a priority after clicking the details button, the NIS server type becomes “User Defined”. User Defined NIS servers are prioritized before servers discovered through broadcast.

    The options are:

    • low (3)
    • medium (2)
    • high (1)

  4. Click OK.
