My test setup consists of Enterprise 5 server running NIS and Samba, and
dual-boot XP and CentOS 5 clients.
On my test setup, I'm able to create new samba accounts and change samba
passwords with no problems.
NIS still gives me problems, though. I am unable to change passwords no
matter what. Also, ypwhich on the client returns localhost.
I have reviewed everything, including configs of other networks that are
live, and cannot figure out where the problem is.
I believe that once I can password changed effortlessly on the NIS side, I
can implement this on the live system. Until NIS account passwords can be
changed at-will, this setup won't go to production.
So, what might I be missing? Why can't I change passwords?
Also, what would cause the client, when issued ypcat passwd, to not show
the newer accounts create by the server, even after a /var/yp make has
Both client and server have been rebooted many times.
