Hi folks,

A couple of questions regarding FreeBSD 2.1.0:

1. I filled in the domainname setting in /etc/sysconfig so I could use
NIS, and the machine hangs during the boot sequence, while trying to
set the multicast and loopback routes.  Eventually it prints a message
similar to

	clnttcp_create: RPC: potmapper failure - RPC: Timed out

and carries on.  What causes this?

2. Why can't I have a line in /etc/exports that exports a file system
to more than one netgroup?

I have

	/local/etc	cshosts1 cshosts2 cshosts3

in my /etc/exports, where cshosts[123] are valid netgroups obtained by
NIS.  mountd reports

Dec  6 15:53:16 solander mountd[92]: Can't change attributes for /local/etc. 
Dec  6 15:53:16 solander mountd[92]: Bad exports list line /local/etc              cshosts1 cshosts2 cshosts3

Using just one of these groups is fine.

Ideas, anyone?

Cheers,
	Simon
