Cannot login using NIS user into HP-UX

Hi all!

I am running an NIS Server with Linux. Now I want to configure a HPUX-Server to use this NIS Server. I have don all the configuration stuff exactly as described in the documentation.

When I run YPCAT passwd, I'll get the correct passwd entries from the server. And if I am doing an su - NISUSER, it works very well.

But if I want to log in as NISUSER directly via ssh or telnet, I'll get an login incorrect.
Is there any other way to resolve this problem?

Thanks
Minhaz

Shalom,

On the client.

ypwhich
# to see if we are actually configured to the server.
If ypwhich does not work, then reconfigure the client.

On the Server
/var/adm/syslog/syslog.log

There is information on which to follow up on this.

Can you share which NIS configuration document you used. Here is an alternative candidate.
