Solaris 2.4 NIS+ patches?

Solaris 2.4 NIS+ patches?

Post by mo » Fri, 28 Oct 1994 21:44:07


I see that FCS Solaris 2.4 was initially released in July 94

        $ cat /etc/motd  
        Sun Microsystems Inc.   SunOS 5.4       Generic July 1994

and at the end of October I suspect ;-) that there might be some
patches to be applied.  Specifically, I'm interested in the list
of NIS+ related patches.  Any pointers?

1. Enable NIS under HPUX so it'll work with Solaris 2.4 NIS+....

Hi there,

well, after hours of reading manuals, FAQs and trying to get things up
and running I could need some help from you out there :-))

What I did so far: installed NIS+ successfully on Solaris 2.4 and
configured one of our HP 9000/700 to use NIS (main job was to start

It successfully uses our NIS+-Server (running in compat-mode) with
stuff like ypcat group or similar, just created groups appear, so I'm
pretty sure that NISin general DOES work!

The only problem is:

I cannot log in, and that is the interesting part of NIS/NIS+, the
central maintenance of passwd ond such stuff. I deleted a dummy-user
from /etc/passwd and the shadow-file And added the +:0:0::: (or
similar) line to the passwd.

But each time I'll try to log in as the dummy-user I get

         Login incorrect

while using the same passwd under solaris 2.4 works like a charme!! I
also checked the perms for nobody and verifyed that I

        ypcat passwd

under HPUX reveals the correct information!

As you may realize, I'm pretty stuck and could honestly need some

Any hints are welcomed, if email drops in, I'll summarize! Pointers to
FAQs (I checked quite a few but wasn't successfull finding help) are
also appreciated!
