NIS issue

Running RH kernel 2.2.16

Got a NIS /etc/passwd issue and am not sure best course of action in fixing the issue.

Master NIS server and the slave have varying degrees of the /etc/passwd db. The slave has the "most" correct version. Basically what's happening when a user added the system is assigning various accounts as the owne and group owner in the newly created account.

The system does not select the same user account - it randomly selects various accounts.

Thank you in advance for your help. Fyi - based on stats I don't believe the network is an issue. Low bandwidth use - don't see any bottlenecks anywhere. CRC errors are minimal. Ping stats between the 2 servers look very reasonable (.2 to .08 ms)
