But 'User add' by AdminSuite User mgr does not work properly.

'cred.org_dir' needs two entry LOCAL and DES.

'nispopulate' makes LOCAL and DES entry for each user

but AdminSuite make only LOCAL entry.

Please help.

1. NIS: How to add a new user, without restarting NIS?

 I've just installed NIS on my Sun machine (Solaris 8), we thought it was a
great idea to have for all our UNIX machine. But all by a suddenly it struck
me, How do I actually add a user or a group?
As I see it would be rather tedious to always do 'ypinit -m' on the server
with new input files for groups passwd etc. and then 'yppush'.

Is there a way to deal with it, so that I simply say 'useradd ...' or
'groupadd ...' or another tool, and then the tool or NIS sees to that it is
up to date with what is the absolutely latest information ?
