Create /etc/resolv.conf and add your desired nameserver, so something like "nameserver 8.8.8.8" and save the file. Go to NextAdmin directory and open HostManager.app, click Local in the menu, use local domain only and readable, set your desired IP/router/netmask info and reboot.

===NIS Client===

<pre>

You have to convince lookupd to look for information via NIS:
 +
 +
% nidump -r /locations/lookupd /
 +
name = lookupd;
 +
LookupOrder = (CacheAgent, NIAgent);
 +
MaxThreads = 12;
 +
CHILDREN = ({
 +
    name = hosts;
 +
    LookupOrder = (CacheAgent, NIAgent, DNSAgent);
 +
    ValidateCache = NO;
 +
}, {
 +
    name = users;
 +
    LookupOrder = (CacheAgent, NIAgent, YPAgent);
 +
});
 +
 +
However, I forget whether 3.3 is recent enough to do this type of
 +
configuration.  If not, you might try enabling the YPDOMAIN in
 +
/etc/hostconfig and/or niloading a /etc/passwd file with just a "+" in
 +
it to enable YP-based passwd lookups.

 +
There's no need to load /etc/passwd into NetInfo, the login program looks in
 +
the flat file for information.
 +
 +
The line in /etc/passwd should be a "+:", I think (that's the way I'm using
 +
it).
 +
 +
and if there are any NIS groups, adding the same line to the end of
 +
/etc/group would be a good idea.
 +
 +
So, the steps are as follows for 3.3:
 +
 +
Make sure there's a line YPDOMAIN=DOMAIN in /etc/hostconfig
 +
Make sure NIS login and group lookup is enabled by editing /etc/passwd and
 +
/etc/group
 +
Reboot, or set domainname and run ypbind.
