How to synchronize unix passwords inside a large cluster

I've got a large cluster with 8 nodes and 12 applications based on the oracle database. I intend to convert the hp-ux servers to trusted system and I'm looking for a way to manage and synchronize the hp-ux passwords for all nodes. Nowadays I do it through some scripts and C program's, but I'd like to improve the procedure. I've heard that NIS+ has many bugs and it's not easy to configure and use. Is it possible to do it with NIS+ ? Any suggestion will be welcome.

Thanks,
Augusto

Hi Augusto,

Please post this question in the HP-UX section of the ITRC forums; the same user ID and password you use in these Business Customer Discussion Groups will work there as well. Here's the home page:
