Starting NIS+ on boot failing

What stage of the startup sequence are you trying to start keyserv? Is it 
before, or after, you have started your time synchronisation daemon? Is it 
before or after you start portmap?

I am not sure why you need to do a keylogin -r. Is there a /etc/.rootkey file 
present before you start keyserv?
