AJG: I guess this makes logging in as root impossible if NIS is bound to a
AJG: remote server and the network dissapears. possible workarounds would be
AJG: distributed local files or running ypserv on every machine. both
AJG: solutions seem like horrid hacks.
Actually, I would view distributing passwd files as a horrid hack, myself,
since those change more often.
Distributing group files is significantly less painful -- or at least
far less frequently painful :)
