Nis Client On Centos not working with Suse Server . But works with Suse Nis Client


Hello

I have a Nis server on Suse 11 which is configured using Yast and nis clients on Suse and CentOs .All clients which is on the Suse Os is working fine. But on CentOs , users couldn't login using nis username.
I have mounted home directory using nfs in fstab . I can switch to nis users homedirectory only when i am root. But nis users could'nt login on reboot.
' ypcat passwd username ' is showing the output . No selinux is enabled in the client .

I have followed this link

http://www.linuxhomenetworking.com/w...The_NIS_Client



Is there is any problem with Suse server to Centos Client in nis ???




Thank You
Jibin

I'm no NIS expert, but I think I had this same problem hooking ubuntu nis clients up to my Suse nis server.

I believe the problem is that Suse uses a different encryption by default (blowfish).

I'm sorry I don't have any more help than that as I've never used nis on centos/redhat.

iirc, straight NIS is plaintext which is why people tend to use LDAP. NIS+ has encryption I believe.
It could simply be the versions of the software are incompatible.
