some days ago, i had this questions:
I want to use the Solstice User Manager. The problem is, we have a
network based on NIS. The NIS-Master is running on a SunOS 4.1.3 host.
So my problem is, how can i change the NIS database on a 4.1.3 host
using for example the Solstice User Manager (which must run on a
Solaris 2.x host)?
The only hint in the manual is, to change root's .rhosts on the
NIS Master. But this don't work here. Maybe i have to change other
So, what have i to do on the NIS Master?
Well, i get some answers and i decide to move the NIS Master to the Solaris
host. Perhaps this was not necessary. When i do this, the Solstice admintools
suddenly take the local files in /etc and don't access the NIS databases.
Then i found the command admtblloc. This helps to change the path for
the admintools to the correct files. But i got more trouble now ... see
my next question in this list ....
B.t.w.: I take my old NIS-source, but i use the new makefile in /var/yp
and change it. I also change the old master to a new slave. I have
also a problem with the file /var/yp/securenets. When the syntax is
wrong, ypserv will not start.
The User Manager has as feature a skeleton path. Works this only for
.cshrc, .profile and .login? How can i put more files in a skeleton
path (.xsession for example)?
It is possible to put more files in this directory.
Where can i find better manuals or books about my questions? The Sun manuals
are very poor for this points.
I get a hint for O'Reilly. This books are very good - i know it. But are their
books available about Solstice Admintools????
