nis+ passwd issue

Hello Gurus,

 

Iam facing an issue in nis+ for changing a users passwd.

 

the old passwd is missed so i need to reset as root user.

 

but getting permission denied even after providing exact root passwd ...

 

root@server1:/root: passwd -r nisplus sreer
Enter root's password:
New Password:
Re-enter new Password:
Permission denied
root@server1:/root:

 

the user is nis user.

 

/etc/nsswitch.conf entry is also OK

passwd:     files nisplus

 

I tried from the nis+ master as well as clients  no way :-(

 

Could you please help me?
