Using linux NIS clients with Solaris 2 NIS masters.

Using linux NIS clients with Solaris 2 NIS masters.

Post by Mark Nelso » Mon, 02 Nov 1998 04:00:00


I'm looking at possibly replacing our sun lab machines with PC's running
Linux, we plan to use Solaris 2 as an NIS master/server and Linux as the
clients.  Does anyone know if this is possible or had any experience in
doing something similar ?  It is very important that we use shadow
passwords, which is my main concern.

Replies by Email if possible

Thanks in advance
