NIS User Addition

Hi All

I am trying to add the user in NIS Master server, but I am getting the following error.


# > useradd -d /app/common/informix -s /usr/bin/ksh -u 30661 -g 203 -c "HP DBSI user" hp_dbspi
UID 30661 is not unique


I checked the user id 30661 is not exisitin in the /etc/passwd.

Please help what to do?

Regards

I might start with:

ypcat passwd | grep 30661
grep 30661 /etc/passwd

> I checked [...]

How? Perhaps you did it well, and perhaps
you did it badly. Unless you show the actual
commands you used with their actual output,
my psychic powers are too weak to tell me if
you know what you're doing, so I don't know
what your opinion is worth.

Great. What was it?

Someday, someone else may find this thread,
and wonder what happened. What was the
actual problem? How did you find it? How
did you solve it?
