I'm in a NIS enviroment. when I do a ypcat passwd.byuid from the work station I'm at, the returned response from ypcat shows my gid is different fromt what I see when I do the command id <myself> on the terminal.
I've checked the /etc/passwd and the /etc/shadow and /etc/nsswitch.conf every thing look OK all user names had been edited out of the passwd and shadow) and there's no references to the gid that I see from the command line.
My question is, where else could the system pull the login credential beside NIS, passwd and shadow?
by the way my Network has a mix of Nix and Windows OSes. Can Windows servers that provide authentication interfering with my login? Thank you in advance for spending time sheding light on this issue.
