    Thanks for the answers,
    Problem was solved after restarting NIS (ypstop, ypstart).


    1- Hi,
    please take a look at /etc/nsswitch.conf .

    A working one should have entries like :
    passwd: files nis
    hosts: files nis
    if you have
    passwd: nis files
    then it can cause an delay, because the Client waits for nis timeout
    before asking the local files...

    2- The "su" command wants to read the entire group map; for some reason
    doing that over tcp appears to fail.
    If you have a "netid" map, you can speed this up by specifying:
    in /etc/default/nss
    I'm not sure exactly which release/patch we introduced that in.
    The ypserver seems to be having trouble; you might want to restart it
    (and make sure you have the latest ypserv and libthread patches)

    I have several workstations(Ultra10, SunFire280) connected to a server
    (SunFire 4800) (all Solaris 2.8) that uses NIS. On all the workstations
    such messages below, started at the same time. When we try to switch
    users with su, it takes minutes to switch, but it succeeds. Once we
    manage to switch, everything works OK for the user. What may be the
