Summary: YP - (NIS)-Server
The Network Information Service (NIS) provides a simple network
lookup service consisting of databases and processes. It was formerly
known as Sun Yellow Pages (YP). The functionality of the two remains
the same; only the name has changed. Its purpose is to provide
information, that has to be known throughout the network, to all
machines on the network. Information likely to be distributed by
NIS is:

    login names/passwords/home directories (/etc/passwd)
    group information (/etc/group)
    host names and IP numbers (/etc/hosts)

So, for example, if your password entry is recorded in the NIS passwd
database, you will be able to login on all machines on the net which
have the NIS client programs running.

  - support specification of fixed ports for ypserv, ypxfrd, ypppasswd via
    /etc/sysconfig/ypserv. This is necessary to support the migration to
    firewalld. firewalld does not support dynamic rpc ports like SuSEfirewall2
    did. One way around this is to assign fixed port numbers for all services.
