Re: How to synchronize user password in TruCluster

This is done automatically in a TruCluster. There is only one copy of the /etc/passwd file for all cluster members. (or /var/tcb/files/auth.db if using "Enhanced Security mode)

Re: How to synchronize user password in TruCluster

Mark's answer is incorrect for V4.0F. To synchronize user passwords for V4.0* (ASE)clusters you can use NIS (YP) or you can
NFS mount the the /var/tcb/auth directory.

See the V4.0F Security Guide, Section 9.3 Using NIS to Centralize Account Management

Re: How to synchronize user password in TruCluster

Sorry, my original answer was for Enhanced Security only. If you are using Base Security you can either use NIS or you'll have to roll your own process to keep the /etc/group and /etc/passwd files synchronized.
