NIS on Solaris and HP-UX
Posted on 1997-06-12
Does NIS on solaris and HP-UX supports Password aging?
I have Solaris as a NIS master server and it uses shadowing
(/etc/shadow). And also the HP-UX as another NIS master server.
As per my understanding, Solaris keeps Password and aging information to /etc/shadow file. Does this password aging information reflects in password maps (NIS maps)?
Can I access this Password AGING information from my
NIS Client from any of the NIS Master server? and How? (I would like to see the PASSWORD AGING information on my NIS client. How?)
I also heard that HP-NIS has this password aging information but not the Sun/Solaris NIS.
