By default vixie-cron starts before ypbind, so any user in nis that has cron jobs will not have the jobs run because they are unknown.
Adding use ypbind to the init.d file should take care of this.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. As an nis user, create a cron job
2. reboot the machine
3. See errors in log file about ORPHAN (no passwd entry)
Errors in log about no passwd entry
cron jobs should run
Should only need a quick edit to /etc/init.d/vixie-cron to add use ypbind.
so restarting vixie-cron after ypbind has started fixes this?
