If you try to run "ypmatch YP_LAST_MODIFIED master.passwd.byname" as root (on your box and then on the master server), which error do you get? reason: No such map in server's domain reason: YP server error Missing maps shouldn't get logged as "refused", since that error is reserved for maps you are not permitted to read (either via the securenets file or if the map exists, has the YP_SECURE key, and you aren't root). I looked at the source to Linux ypserv, and the only time it logs "refused" is for those two conditions I mentioned above. If you start ypserv on the Linux box with the -d flag, it should log some more information, including exactly why requests are refused. > So, is there a way for me to configure my box so that it still runs > NIS but without asking for master.passwd?

Commenting out the lookup in src/lib/libc/gen/getpwent.c:mis_map() and rebuilding world should do it. -- Dan Nelson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
