What error do you get?
I get the same error that was mentioned in the posting below. I get it when I run as either root or user.
#yppasswd burdine Changing NIS password for burdine on zan. Old Password: yppasswd: sorry
When I went parusing through the source I found where it is dying, I think...
line 153 in /usr/src/usr.bin/passwd/yp_passwd.c
which leads me to believe that it is a crypt problem..? but I have checked all the usual suspects... /etc/login.conf /etc/auth.conf both are using des.
I did run across this posting:
That applies to NIS servers. Root on an NIS client has no extra privs.
