I have the following question:
We have UNIX machines that run HP-UNIX 11.00 and Solaris 9 connected in the
same network. The server is HP machine where the home directories are
physically located. Of course I would like to have the same home
directories, same user names and corresponding IDs on the Solaris machine so
the home directory is mounted there.
The problem is that it seems the password files and user group files are a
bit different and if they are distributed from HP to Solaris the users
cannot log on Solaris machine. This is the first problem. However if I
manually change the password on Solaris machine I can log.
Then it comes the second problem - after I have logged on Solaris the
settings of my HP desktop environment are overwritten, so next time I log to
HP machine my desktop looks a bit strange, i.e. different than in my
previous HP session (not commenting that the workspace customization is
Do you have any idea if those problems can be resolved ?
