I assume you can't.  I assume that's why there is NIS+?  But that isn't supported on 11.31.

The suggestion is to use LDAP.

Hi Dennis,
Why I have to use LDAP, what is the disadvantage over NIS.

Because there is no ypcat?

Something new to learn to set up and admin.

Okay, but is it easy to setup, or I should attend a training course for it?
