NIS+ authentication failure


This is a Federated Naming Service message. The operation could not be completed because the principal making the request could not be authenticated with the name service involved.


Run the nisdefaults(1) command to verify that you are identified as the correct NIS+ principal. Also check that the system has specified the correct public key source.
