NIS - possible to extend group membership locally
Posted on 2004-11-24
let's pretend there is a Solaris-box (5.7) which gets logon-information via NIS from a server where I don't have root-access.
Is it possible to extend group membership locally - where I have root-access?
E.g. asking NIS, "user1" is in "group1".
I want him to be in "group1" AND -locally- in "group2" .
Trying "usermod -G group1,group2 user1" brings "user1 does not exist".
If I try to "useradd user1" on the local machine it says "already in use".
I hope you get my point and have an idea how to solve this.
Many thanks in advance, krisse.
