Event ID 4097 — Server for NIS Functionality -- Push Service

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

Server for NIS synchronizes and propagates NIS map changes to UNIX-based NIS subordinate (also known as slave) servers. The NIS master server supports the following transfer modes:

  • Periodic transfer of NIS maps
  • On-demand transfer of NIS maps to subordinate servers

Typically, NIS maps are transferred to subordinate servers upon change by using the make utility. The Windows-based NIS server does not use make; instead, the server pushes immediately.

Subordinate NIS servers can request transfer of maps at any time. Server for NIS Server Functionality -- Push Service provides information to help you interpret system messages indicating the functional state of the NIS map push service.
