Initially we were using SunOS 4.1.3 and we are using NIS to centralize the password
entries. To disallow people from loging on to some of our servers we would modify
the /etc/passwd file and remove the NIS entry (+::.... etc) and add some lines like
This only allows only the above users and any users defined in the local passwd file
to log on.
Well we deemed it necessary to upgrade to SOLARIS 2.5 or 5.5 and now this does not seem
to work anymore. Does the NIS used by Solaris differ? And if so how can I deny people
from logging on to our servers without having to manually add/edit passwd entries everytime
someone changes their passwd. Any help is most appreciated.
