When trying to update the NIS master server
(/nis/edit_server.cgi), I get this error
from /nis/save_server.cgi:

"Failed to save NIS server : '$1' is not a valid NIS domain"

(looks to me like a parsing problem)

Occured in the last few versions of webmin (at least),
running on Solaris 2.6 and Solaris 8.

    That error message is definately wrong - it should say
    something like
    'foo.com' is not a valid NIS domain.
    What is the name of the domain on your system? The module
    will only accept names containing letters, numbers, . and -

    The NIS domain name is 'itgil_qa', which is fine by SUN (was
    manually configured, and works OK).

    Ok, I see the problem - webmin is rejecting the _ in the
    domain name, because it isn't allowed in a DNS domain. The
    next release will allow this.
