NIS+, NIS and yppasswd

NIS+, NIS and yppasswd

Post by Nigel Verd » Thu, 30 Mar 1995 04:00:00

I am presently tasked with building a system based on Suns (Solaris 2.4),
ICLs (DRS/NX) and HPs.  The spec is to run NIS+ on the Suns and ordinary NIS
on the ICLs and HPs.  Does anybody know an elegant method of allowing users
to change their passwords over the net (i.e. using the yppaswwd command) as
NIS+ in YP compatability mode does not allow this (which I am sure you are
all aware of) - logging onto a NIS+ server is not being considered an option.

I would appreciate any help on this as it will alleviate me the task of
writing "emulation" of yppasswdd on Solaris 2.

Many Thanks........Nigel
