Subject Re: [users@httpd] strange behaviour during httpd start: chown operation 1 pro second
Date Sat, 03 Jul 2010 09:50:04 GMT
Hello,

yes, I'm using NIS. - How can I find out, if NIS is really the problem? I 
studied the system calls via truss, but could not determine that NIS is a 
problem here. Maybe I have overseen something.

How did you worked around this problem?

regards
  	Harald
