I have an NIS server running and the client machine seems to be using it properly. The client machine can ypcat the host and pasword files of the NIS server with no problems. However, yppasswd doesn't see to be working properly. I create a user on the new NIS server, copy the contents of /etc/passwd into my /var/yp/etc/passwd file and then run Make. Everything seems to work fine. I then run yppasswd for the user and it seems to work fine and tells me that the NIS information for this user has changed, however it doesn't. the user cannot use it's newly created NIS password on the client machine, it still uses the original password that was copied from /etc/passwd.
Am I missing a step? Let me know if you can help. ypserv, ypbind (master and slave) and rpc.yppasswdd are running on the server. THanks in advance.
