Solaris Common Messages and Troubleshooting Guide


Check the passwd(4) file with pwck(1M) and verify that yppasswdd(1M) is running on the right server. Then verify where the passwd(4) file is located and, if changed, check that yppasswdd(1M) has the location in the process line. The password located in /etc/yp should read /usr/lib/yp/rpc.yppasswdd -D /etc/yp. The -D option with the passwd files directory location tells yppasswdd(1M) where to update and verify password changes.
