This hobbit server-side script, compatible Unix & Linux, allows nis server monitoring.

The script is based on Henrik's Server-side script examples. The NIS test itself comes from a revamped bigbrother installation and was changed by different persons from Genome Research Limited.

  1. Add script to server's ext folder
  2. Modify for your environment and add the following to the server hobbitlaunch.cfg
    [nis]
            ENVFILE /usr/lib/hobbit/server/etc/hobbitserver.cfg
            NEEDS hobbitd
            CMD $BBHOME/ext/hobbit-nis.sh
            LOGFILE $BBSERVERLOGS/hobbit-nis.log
            INTERVAL 5m
  3. Now you can add the “nis” service for hosts in your bb-hosts file.
