Hi,

well RJG's link is for master NIS server and slave NIS server.
If you only have one NIS server and the others are clients, a 'passwd' is enough.

I thought you needed "passwd -r nis".

Re: reset passwd in NIS

Hi again,

well in my environment (1 nis-server, 40 clients, NO slave) a passwd always worked.
Obviously (no lokal user passwords) the password has to be changed at the server, so it should work for all clients.
