5.1B NIS Client problem.

I've got Tru64 5.1.B pk2, configured as NIS Client with C2 security option.
It does see NIS users but does not see our NIS template, to which these users are attached.
(Namely, Account manager shows users belong to 'default' template instead of our 'avon' template.)

Consequently, NIS users does thir passwords OK, but when they are changing password - pasword options are absolutely wrong.

NIS master is Trunix 5.1A pk 3, another NIS clients are 4.0F, 5.1A. All systems has C2 configured, all working just fine.

Any ideas?

Re: 5.1B NIS Client problem.

what is "NIS template", NIS database or NIS domain?

Re: 5.1B NIS Client problem.

Examine the accounts in question with
'edauth -gN victim' and check that they really do have ":u_template=avon:" in them.
If so, then make sure that 'edauth -gN avon' shows the right data, and that its record includes ":u_istemplate:".

Make the above checks on at least two client machines as well as on the NIS master. Depending on what that shows, we may be able to make some progress.
