I have two pis running osmc, which are supposed to access videos from my main NAS via NFS.
The NFS mounts happen via autofs, which in turn gets configured via NIS.
Since “a few days” nis does not start anymore… all I see in the system journal is this:
root@osmcdownstairs:~# journalctl -u nis.service -- Logs begin at Fri 2020-10-23 14:12:09 CEST, end at Fri 2020-10-23 15:38:33 CEST. -- Okt 23 14:13:44 osmcdownstairs systemd: Starting LSB: Start NIS client and server daemons.... Okt 23 14:14:07 osmcdownstairs nis: Starting NIS services: ypbindbinding to YP server...........................................failed (backgrounded). Okt 23 14:14:07 osmcdownstairs nis: . Okt 23 14:14:07 osmcdownstairs systemd: Started LSB: Start NIS client and server daemons..
Needless to say that “systemctl restart nis” does not work.
Here’s the fun part: just starting ypbind without any arguments from a root shell works.
This only happens on the two pis running osmc - two other pis running “vanilla” raspbian buster, several openSUSE installations, a Fedora32 and a RHEL8 all work fine.
on the osmc pis the nis package is 3.17.1-3+b1, on the two other pis its 3.17.1-3+b2 …
