If a machine that uses NIS boots or cups restarts when ypbind is not bound
to a server, the list of remote printers comes up as
printer at 192.168.1.27
where 192.168.1.27 is the ipaddress of the linux machine that servers the
printers. In other words cups comes up as though BrowseShortNames is set
fixing the ypbind problem and restarting cups does NOT resolve the problem
--at least not right away. stopping cups; removing
/var/cache/cups/remote.cache ; and restarting cups
does solve the problem.
perhaps the /etc/init.d/cups script might be made to delete remote.cache
on (re)start ?
