We have 5 machine ( 1[RH 7.1 NIS Server] + 2[RH7.1] +
2[*NEW* RH7.2] ).
1.Problem is some of user can't able to login to *NEWly*
installed [RH 7.2] machine.
Are users not able to login locally, or are they not able to login
The main problem seems to be because the NFS home directories are not
mounted on the new machine. Is the automounter running? Check if you can
mount the directories as root. If yes, then check the automounter settings
and see if it is running. /etc/auto.home and /etc/auto.master have to
point to the right NIS maps.
2.When they try to login thru ssh permission deniedCan you give the exact error that gets displayed?
( PublicKey, Passwd, Keyboard-interactive ) error
Permission Denied (PublicKey, Passwd, Keyboard-interactive)
The host keys are stored in the .ssh directory in the home of the users.
When users try to login thru ssh, the home directory itself is not
getting mounted, and so, the sshd does not know the public key of the
user's machine (remote). Thus, no communication can happen between the
user's machine and the sshd. This means there will be no key negotiation,
no password request etc. I guess thats why that error is displayed.
