NIS+ on Redhat Enterprise Linux

Latest response

Hi All

Can your software engineer create nis+ for future Redhat Linux Enterprise as my server is running on nis+ (solaris OS)?




I don't think there's a meaningful business case to be made for NIS+ support in RHEL. NIS+ has been deprecated for years; Sun/Oracle's own "NIS+ End-of-Feature (EOF) Announcement FAQ" points to LDAP as the way forward. Red Hat Enterprise Linux has extensive support for LDAP already, including scripts to facilitate migration from NIS to LDAP.

Thanks for the feedback, Will, and thanks Ray for letting us know the situation re NIS+ on RHEL.
