dear Managers,

Surprisingly, as mentioned by most of the reply I got,
those files ( /etc/nscd.conf, /etc/inittab and
/etc/motd ) are distributed that way and will have
no harm to system and not related to the rollover to 990909.
I checked my distribution CD, it's true.
Brooke King mentioned that this is true on Solaris 7 too.
I think this should be fixed by Sun.

Thanks to below managers for their reply.

-------------- original question -----------------------

dear managers,
forgive me if this question has been raised before but
I didn't found it in faq.
Today when just checking on any effect of the rollover to
09/09/99 I found this file's date to be Jan 1 70 (unix time start
I guess).
% ls -l /etc/nscd.conf
-rw-r--r-- 1 root sys 773 Jan 1 1970 /etc/nscd.conf

both of my solaris 2.6 and 2.5.1 shows the same.
any suggestion why ?
