NIS+ Interaction with DNS

Unlike NIS, NIS+ has no automatic forwarding feature. To forward requests from NIS+ to DNS, the Naming Service Switch on the client must be configured to search DNS for hosts resolution.

NOTE

If an NIS+ server is run in NIS compatibility mode, the Naming Service Switch on the NIS+ server needs to be configured to search DNS.
