Untested in any other environment other than client of Solaris 8 NIS+ in YP compat.

However I am using the AMD automounter to mount users home directories from HP-UX 10.20, Solaris 8 and 9 systems succesfully.

Relevant parts of my /etc/rc.conf and /etc/amd.conf are:

ifconfig_xl0="DHCP"
nisdomainname="one.two"
nis_client_enable="YES"
nis_client_flags="-s -S one.two,a.big.expensive.server.com -m"
rpcbind_enable="YES"
nfs_server_enable="YES"
nfs_client_enable="YES"
mountd_flags="-r"
amd_enable="YES"
amd_flags="-F /etc/amd.conf"

Extract of /etc/amd.conf:

[global]
map_options = opts:=intr,rsize=8192,wsize=8192
mount_type = nfs
auto_dir = /.tmp_mnt
cache_duration = 300
log_file = syslog
restart_mounts = yes
unmount_on_exit = no

[/home]
map_name = amd.home
map_type = nis

freeme: {1005} ypmatch user1 amd.home
host==freeme;type:=link;fs:=/export/home/user1 || rhost:=freeme;type:=nfs;rfs:=/export/home/user1;sublink:=.

Is there a PR for this?

I understand this patch fixes ypclient to solaris NIS+ compat. Have you tested
it in any other configs?

As said by Napolean Bonaparte:
"Never ascribe to malice, that which is adequately explained by incompetence"

After being embraced by MS:

"When accused of malice, always hide behind incompetence".
