Check that ypserv is running on the host that you specified in authconfig, and that the connection to it is not firewalled (on either the client or the server).

Other things that I've seen before that cause this are stupid spelling errors in the NIS domain declaration, server host name, or by giving it the wrong server hostname altogether (or by mis-typing the IP address... yes - I've done all of these).

It's even possible that your DNS isn't working very quickly, and IP of the NIS host isn't available at NIS connect time. As your NIS server is likely to be running on a static IP address, it might help to add that server to the /etc/hosts file on every NIS machine, or even move that information into the DHCP data provided at startup.
