Good Afternoon

I have a nis+ database running on a collection of solaris 8 servers, after applying a patch 108993-32 we had an password reset issue to which sun advised to add the following line to our nis+ masters pam.conf file:

passwd   auth required   pam_passwd_auth.so.1

no we are getting error messages when clients try to change their own password:

 This password does not decrypt your secure RPC password.
Please enter your old Secure RPC password:

and the user does not know what their old secure rpc password is and to be honest I am stumped as well, I am new to nis+ and am trying to cover managing the enviroment while our solaris admin is on leave.  I would appricate a direction to head.

the Default secure RPC passwd is "nisplus" have you tried that?  
It is then usually changed to be the same as the user's password
