The "groups" command does not show all groups

Post by Alla » Fri, 08 Feb 2002 06:46:37

Hi everyone,

We have NIS server running Solaris 2.6(Ultra 60) and some NIS clients
running Solaris 7(Ultra 10).
After I reboot NIS client and use command "groups username",it doesn't
show all user's groups.Only show part of them.

What I do is: reboot them again(sometimes reboot 3 time or more
).After that it'll work normal.

Is it bug for Solaris 7?Is there is way to solve it without reboot?

Thanks in advance,
