NIS problem logging in from client pc
I have setup an NIS Server on Red Hat Linux along with a dozen or so clients which are all working fine. Any attempts to login with a nis user from one particular client though, does not work.
From that client
- "ypmatch nisuser passwd" returns a valid result.
- "getent passwd" returns a list of local user and nis users.
- "getent passwd nisuser" does not return anything.
I thought this might be due to a misconfiguration in my /etc/nsswitch.conf file. However, it is identical to other client machines that are working. Contents of the nsswitch.conf are (i've excluded all comments)
passwd: files nis
shadow: files nis
group: files nis
hosts: files dns nis
I'm stuck! Any help would be greatly appreciated!
