I have some hosts installed centos4.8/6.5/5.9,and want to centralize identity/policy/authorization.but ipa client isn't compatible with centos4.8,so I try to configure FreeIPA integrated with NIS Domains.
     IPAserver:centos7 (+DNS)

I followed the instructions of this page: https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/7/html/Linux_Domain_Identity_Authentication_and_Policy_Guide/nis.html,to add netgroup(nis_test) and users(zhongq).then configured nis client installed centos4.8.on the nis client, I could get users data ,look like that:

[root@nisclient ~]# getent passwd zhongq
zhongq:*:724800001:724800001:强 é:/home/zhongq:/bin/sh

However,I do not succeed to log into nisclient with zhongq account.
Any ideas?


You need to use some other method for authentication. NIS only supported for identity not for authentication. Use pam_ldap or pam_krb5 for authentication part.
