NIS+ User Cannot Remote Log In to Remote Domain


User tries to rlogin to a machine in some other domain and is refused with a “Permission denied” type error message.

Possible Cause:

To rlogin to a machine in another domain, a user must have LOCAL credentials in that domain.


Run nismatch username.domainname. cred.org_dir in the other domain to see if the user has a LOCAL credential in that domain.


Go to the remote domain and use nisaddcred to create a LOCAL credential for the user in the that domain.
