[ILUG] Problems setting up NIS slave server

In our network we have a NIS master server running Red Hat 6.2
and a number of NIS clients running various versions of Red Hat.
I've been trying to set up one of the clients as a slave server.
This client is working properly as a client and if I do a ypcat ...
it does get the map. When i do a /usr/lib/yp/ypinit -s NISMASTER
I get an error message:
"Can't Enumerate maps, check to see that it is running"
(or something like that)
I tried the same thing on a different client just in case there was
a problem with that one and I got the same error.
The daemons i have running on the master server are ypserv and yppasswdd.
Should I be running the ypbind daemon on the server also?
