Can't change NIs passwd at client end
Hi! Please help!
Currently I am setting up a Lan using Linux 9 with one NIS Master , one NIS slaves and a number of NIS clients.
Recently, I have encountered one problem at client - unable to change the NIS password.
The following error messages were collected :
Changing password for user wanch.
Changing password for wanch
(current) UNIX password:
Retype new password:
Error while changing NIS password.
The password has not been changed on s2.
passwd: Failed preliminary check by password service
Changing NIS account information for wanch on s2.
Please enter old password:
Changing NIS password for wanch on s2.
Please enter new password:
Please retype new password:
Error while changing the NIS password.
The NIS password has not been changed on s2.
S2 is my NIS master. The service yppasswd is running fine at server end and I can change password at server. I have tried to restart the yp* services at both server and client ends but still unable to find out the fault.
