This ain't anything like NT


Thay say third time is a charm and maybe this time I will get an answer

My NIS server has NISDOMAIN=mincomp,but my client has NISDOMAIN=SomeElse entry in /etc/sysconfig/network file.

But for some reason Im still able to log in on client with ussername that exists on NIS server.

Why did NIS server allow client from different domain to join the domain and log in?

In NT world only members of the same domain could use domain's passwords

thank you


//Nevermind...It was a stupid question

You might get a better response to your question if you post subject better.
ie... "Converting NIS from NT" or something to that effect.
