Hey All Got an odd one here - have set up a few FreeBSD NIS environments and they've not done this to me before.
FreeBSD 4.9-RELEASE NIS master, trying to change password for NIS user on same machine. One other client - Red Hat 7.3 All works fine, can log in to both machines, can ypcat all the maps, etc. However when I try and change password on the FreeBSD box I get this: passwd: failed to change NIS password: RPC: Server can't decode arguments I've done some reading and even though it shouldn't make a difference since the same FreeBSD box is NIS server & client I have tried: changing default password from md5 to des in /etc/login.conf setting up a /etc/securenets running rpc.yppasswdd with a "-u" but no joy. I have even tried copying yppasswd (which was identical) and rpc.yppasswdd (which was not) from a working FreeBSD 4.8 system. Any ideas anyone?
