NIS db issue
User NIS experience:
RH 7.0 Master NIS server
RH 6.1 Slave
User/Group account mis-matches
When I add a user to the system via Master NIS server it does create entries in the /etc/passwd and /etc/group and a home directory for the user.
But it gives incorrect user ownsership to the home directory. Not able to detect a consistent pattern of user account mappings. Appears sporadic.
If I give the correct user ownership to the home directory on the Slave server - the Master then incorrectly associates the home directory.
Blah - catch 22. Basically no matter what I do the mappings are incorrect. So should I copy the /etc/passwd and the /etc/group files from the Master to the Slave and restart ypserv and ypbind?
Any ideas you might have regarding this issue are greatly appreciated!
