SUMMARY:"rpc.yppasswdd problem"

Original message:
>I have a sun(4.1.4) network running NIS. On the master server the
>following is running:
>/usr/etc/rpc.yppasswdd /var/etc/passwd -nosingle -m passwd

I had a typo in the original message, DIR should have been
/var/yp/ The solution was DIR should be pointing to
the directory that contains the passwd file, not the location of the
passwd maps.

hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got
to be 21, I was astonished at how much he had learned in
seven years."
