Testing NIS Server & Client
Posted on 2001-07-17
I have RH 7.1 as a server running NIS and Ypserver and
Slackware 8 as a client. I created an account
on NIS server machine using normal adduser command,
and tried the command, "ypcat passwd" to list all
of entries in /etc/passwd from NIS client machine.
It looks everything works OK. Now, I tried to login
from my client machine, but the client machine doesn't
recognize the account I created on NIS server machine.
Do I need to copy /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow files
from NIS server machine to NIS client machine to
make NIS client work?
