I'm running NIS Server on Redhat6.2. I've created 7 users in NIS Server
m/c. and I've created directories for the users with their name as the login
id on the client end(nis clients) . Now I've changed the password for a user
in NIS Server m/c and the thing is I'm still able to login with the old
password of the user from the client end.
1) cd /var/yp
now u can use the new password on all the systems. alternatively, use
the 'yppasswd' to change the password on the NIS server.
To use yppasswd, start the yppasswdd server.
# service yppasswdd start
But the new password chang effected only onm the server part.
Why is this so?
Do you Yahoo!?
