Hi I have a centralized mail server that actually use NIS to access users's passwd, as we use a LDAP server to authenticate all users I had to setup a YP <--> LDAP gateway to let our mail server access to the LDAP.
The YP <--> LDAP software is from HPUX 11.11 but it suffers of some bugs and sometime the NIS client on the mail server cannot contact the pseudo NIS server that runs on YP/LDAP gateway. The problem is the mail server runs 4.9-R that cannot support nss_ldap and it is not possible to upgrade to 5.xx for now due to other softwares that run on it. My question ( at last ... ) is there a possibility to dump the LDAP database from the mail server and format it ( thru a shell script ) into a /etc/passwd file format , then integrate it to the LOCAL passwd file ? at last is it possible to modify the /etc/master.passwd file with a shell script to add some entries in it the modify the passwd database WITHOUT using vipw ?
