There is a full nis server, but no NIS+ server. There is an older
snapshot of a NIS+ Server for FreeBSD, but that had a lot of bugs the
last time I have tested it. Don't know the current status.
If I had more time, I had started programming a NIS+ server. Or I need
much more people, who are not only willing to use it, but also to
contribute large parts of code.

Linux is like a Vorlon.  It is incredibly powerful, gives terse,
cryptic answers and has a lot of things going on in the background.
