View Full Version : [ubuntu] How do I stop ypbind on startup?

June 27th, 2008, 06:54 AM
I tried running ps -ef | grep ypbind and sudo killing the process. This does not stop the machine from trying to bind at each new boot.

--How do I permantly stop ypbind from trying to bind?

Try using System->Administration->Services or install boot-up manager

sudo apt-get install bum
Then find it under System->Administration->Boot-Up Manager (and check the box at the bottom for Advanced, then check the Services tab).

On Ubuntu 12.04 if ypbind is installed check your /etc/defaults/nis file and make sure your NIS client mode is false. other wise you will have a respawned ypbind client process.
