adduser(8) doesn't know anything about NIS. I don't know any automated way of adding users to a NIS map, but my home network is small enough that I don't bother. What you want to do is move the users' entries from master.passwd into your NIS master file, and rebuild the maps. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
