nis client and shadow passwords
I'm tring to set up a NetBSD NIS client. The server stores encrypted
passwords in a shadow passord file while NetBSD tries to authenticate
against the non-shadow password file (containing 'x' in the password field).
How can I force NetBSD to take passwords from the shadow file, and other
account details (uid,gid, shell) from the non-shadow password file?
Communications with the server do not seem to be a problem, as I can
ypcat passwd.byname and shadow.byname, and yptest returns no errors from
NetBSD. If I replace the 'x' in the non-shadow password file with the
DES hash of the users' password, the user can log-in to the NetBSD box.
Any pointers are appreciated.
with kind regards,
