I have an idea of whats going on w/ my authentication problem. When
performing a nismatch command as root on my linux box, I should be able to
see an encrypted password. Instead i see *NP*:
[root at linux1 tmp]# nismatch david passwd.org_dir
For some reason, my nis+ server does not trust my nis+ client. Can someone
instruct me on how to get the two to trust eachother.
Also, a chkey -p as root on the linux client yields:
[root at linux1 tmp]# chkey -p
Updating nisplus publickey database.
Reencrypting key for 'unix.linux1 at my.domain.com'.
Please enter the Secure-RPC password for root:
chkey: insufficent permission to update credentials.
Any help would be appreciated. thanks.
