(I have no name!)NIS,NFS
Hello, i configured a NIS server with four computers (one NIS server and three clients...). Something is wrong because i get this message after
i log in has a user (marc for example) in a client's machine(pcname). Like so:
[i have no name!pcname@marc]$
I figure i'm not to far away from doing it right...because marc does not exist on this machine...
Here are some points you might need:
- i changed (edited) the home files of all users in /etc/passwd of the server.
ex: (from /home/marc to /home/dirname/marc), this home file is logic for the server because the source is still in /home/marc (the directory «dirname» doesn't exist on the server)
-on the clients i mounted (the server's host name is sernis):
mount sernis.nisdomain:/home /home/dirname
note that the «dirname» directory does exist on the client machines.
(with 777 rights just in case...)
