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


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?
