I am using solstice -> User manager to try to add a user to nis+
The home directories are on the same server as Solstice is running on,
If I tick the little box to ask it to create the home directory, I get the
following error when I click the apply button
The operation failed with this status:
add user method failed: Admin daemon is either not running on host nis1
under rpc no. 100123 vers 10 or host nis1 is not known to host nis1.
If , on the other hand I dont click the "create home directory" box but keep
the fields specifying the server name and path wtih the same information
ie server name nis1 , path /export/home/username, the user is added
successfully with the warning " home directory does not exist ".
What kind of nonsense is this ?
