CAFT Message: Transfer time limit exceeded UNIX NIS Directory

Description:

Sometimes when adding a UNIX namespace you can get the following message:
"CAFT Message: Transfer time limit exceeded UNIX NIS Directory"

The reason for this is a combination between the network and the fact that default protocol for CAM/CAFT is UDP.
A possible fix is to change the protocol on both the server and your clients to TCP.

Solution:

On your server:

camconfig *paths "etrust.nis protocol=tcp"
camsave persist 

On your UNIX client:

cd 'cat /etc/catngcampath'/bin           
./camconfig *paths "<YOURSERVERNAME> protocol=tcp"       
./camsave persist
