Hi all,

As you know NIS used with NFS to enable client Linux machine login to the NIS server after mounting home directory using NFS.  Users will be created one NIS servers and make command used under /var/yp to update NIS database.
NIS isn’t secure, I want to use Kerberos, what do I need to configure to allow linux client machine to login to Linux Kerberos server, same as NIS? Do I need NFS, or LDAP, or only Kerberos client. I just need to know what is needed then I can do my search

Thanks
