I don't want flame but i wont recommend NIS+ because:
a) server implementation exists only on solaris
b) it's very complicated system with many (non yet discovered)bugs
c) uses RPC (look @ b) )
d) if there's any NIS host, NIS+ falls back to compatibility mode -
functions just like NIS
e) even SUN, which invented NIS+, don't recommends to use it, and urges
to migrate to LDAP
I thin that's enough reasons.
