Hello. I am wondering what the best way to distribute passwd files across a
network of linux boxes is. I'd like to avoid NIS/yp, because of the security
risks and other problems associated with it. Doing it over nfs is also not
an option, the speed on our systems just isn't adequate.
I have heard its possible to distribute them via rdist/rdistd, and after looking
at the package, i cannot see how this is done. Presently, i would just like to
get two machines up, with the same passwd files on each. I want it so if a user
changes their passwd on machine1, in a couple minutes or whatever the change is
reflected in machine2, and the other way around..
