from any of my machines and I still haven't gotten it to work.
I have 5 machines running FC3, one contains /home and the password
file. It runs ypserv and correctly distributes passwords and home
directories to the rest of the system.
On a client machine (running ypbind), I can run yppasswd and update
a password. This correctly changes the password on the server and
runs the Makefile in /var/yp to re-build the database. However, it
does not restart ypserv so the new database is not visible to the
rest of the system. That's problem one.
Problem two occurs on the server. I've tried running yppasswd to
update passwords both with and without yppasswdd running and with and
without ypbind running. In all cases, I get an error that looks like
yppasswd: unknown user (uid=***)
Where *** is either my user id if I'm running it as me or "0" if
I'm running it as root.
I've found a bit of conflicting information about which daemons
should be running on which machines so I'll ask that as well. My
current setup has
yppasswdd - only on server
ypbind - on all machines (though it appears unnecessary on server)
ypserv - only on server
I sure would appreciate a pointer to some help on how to get yppasswd
(and yes, ***@earthlink.net is a real e-mail address but
it doesn't get read unless I'm expecting e-mail.)
