Shared password database

Post by nwalt.. » Thu, 07 Oct 1999 04:00:00



I have two redhat linux servers, how do I make them use the same password
database so that users can log in to services on either one with the same
password?

Thanks in advance,
Nicholas Waltham

Look into NIS (try /usr/doc/HOWTO/NIS-HOWTO on your redhat servers, or
look at http://www.suse.de/~kukuk/linux/nisplus.html)

Install ypserver on one machine and ypclients on both.  One machine will
have the 'master' password database (the one with ypserver) and the
other will access the master via the ypclient software.  The relevant
packages are (RH 5.2, RH 6.0 is similar):

Name        : yp-tools                    Distribution: Manhattan
Version     : 2.1                               Vendor: Red Hat Software
Release     : 1                             Build Date: Tue Oct  6 03:20:38 1998
Install date: (not installed)               Build Host: porky.redhat.com
Group       : Networking/Utilities          Source RPM: yp-tools-2.1-1.src.rpm

URL         : http://www-vt.uni-paderborn.de/~kukuk/linux/nis.html
Summary     : NIS (YP) clients
Description :
This implementation of NIS for linux is based on the YP stuff for
FreeBSD. It is a special port for glibc 2.x and libc >= 5.4.21.

This implementation only provides NIS _clients_. You must already have
a NIS server running somewhere. You can find one for linux on
http://www-vt.uni-paderborn.de/~kukuk/linux/nis.html. Please read the
NIS-HOWTO, too.
Name        : ypbind                      Distribution: Manhattan
Version     : 3.3                               Vendor: Red Hat Software
Release     : 9                             Build Date: Fri Jul 31 08:23:21 1998
Install date: (not installed)               Build Host: porky.redhat.com
Group       : Networking                    Source RPM: ypbind-3.3-9.src.rpm
Size        : 37998                            License: GPL

Summary     : NIS binding process
Description :
This is a daemon which runs on NIS/YP clients and binds them to a
NIS domain. It must be running for systems based on glibc to behave
as NIS clients.
Name        : ypserv                      Distribution: Manhattan
Version     : 1.3.5                             Vendor: Red Hat Software
Release     : 1                             Build Date: Mon Aug 24 15:40:38 1998
Install date: (not installed)               Build Host: porky.redhat.com
Group       : Networking/Daemons            Source RPM: ypserv-1.3.5-1.src.rpm

URL         : http://www-vt.uni-paderborn.de/~kukuk/linux/nis.html
Summary     : NIS/YP Server
Description :
ypserv is an implementation of the standard NIS/YP networking protocol.
It allows network-wide distribution of hostname, username, and other
information databases. This is the NIS server, and is not needed on NIS
clients.

1. Shared Password Database Linux-WIN??

hi there,
i want to set up a network with some linux-servers and a win2k pdc. the
clients are based
on win2k, win98 and macintosh.
does anyone know an efficient way to keep all useraccounts, passwords
etc in one database?
i want to be able to add a new user just on one server in the network
(eg. the win pdc or a linux server) and the servers do the rest. the
users should be able
to change their passwords from the client-boxes.
thanks,
leo
