I want to use linux for NIS server, but some problem happen.
My new machine's OS is solaris 7 ,which use shadow passwords,
cannot be used NIS client.
I think it is because each uses different password storing method.
How can I do?
No, the encryption used in /etc/shadow is the same as in /etc/passwd.Quote:> I want to use linux for NIS server, but some problem happen.

We use /etc/shadow only for the root password, the other passwords areQuote:> How can I do?
Platform: Suse Linux Professional 9.1
Changing a passwd on an NIS client using the passwd command works
fine. The /etc/shadow and shadow.byname map gets updated on the NIS
However, changing a passwd on the NIS server using the passwd command
only updates the /etc/shadow file. The shadow.byname map does not get
updated. The only way I can think of to fix this is to set up a cron
job to periodically run
make -C /var/yp
I am using Thorsten Kukuk's pam_unix2.so module which is suppose to be
"clever" enough to find out whether the account it's dealing with is
local or NIS but it does not appear to work.
Any idea what's wrong?
