I'm trying to set up NIS using shadow passwords on Redhat 5.1.
I've followed the Howto and man pages etc, and I'm reasonably
confident that I've set every thing up correctly but I can't
get it to work.
On the client machine I can ypcat both password and shadow file
but I can't login with an NIS user.
I've configured the nsswitch.conf file according to the man page
and Howto, plus most other combinations too trying to get it
I can also finger an NIS user on the client machine and get correct
results, so it looks lik the password file is working correctly.
Plus I can (as root) su to an NIS user which works fine, because no
password is required, but try any kind of login which requires a
passwork and it doesn't work.
Then I vaguely remembered reading that the problem is to do
with Redhat using PAM. Is this likely to be the problem and has
anyone got Rehdhat 5.1 to use shadow passwords with NIS
Thanks for any help,
