I've got a small group of users, and I fear I'm going to end up with 2-3
passwords per user, and would like to avoid this.
Network of W98 PCs
1 Linux Samba server
1 SCO Server, running an app which needs SCO VisionFS, and plaintext
At the insistence of the SCO app vendor, I have enabled plaintext.
Can anyone point me to a solution where:
Users can have 1 password, and
Users can change this password from the 98 box.
It appears that to sync passwords you need encryption. If this is NOT
the case, I can set up an /etc/smbpasswd file, and possible coerce the
people into running NIS for me.
Any ideas? I may just tell the people that they have N passwords, but
I'd like to be more elegant.
