 NIS and shadow and linux, oh my!

trying to get the NIS working on a linux box with shadow installed.  i have
it all working except for one thing - logging in.  i cannot get my login to
see the shadow passwords in the NIS map.  (ftp either).  is there anything
special i need to do to make this work?  i have a + sign in both my /etc/passwd
and my /etc/shadow.  my guess is that this should now work, right?

thanks

I'm not positive, but you might have to disable shadowed pws to get NIS to
reconize them (at least thats what i read in the linux network
administrators book).

Standard Linux libc5 doesn't support shadow passwords from a NIS map.
GNU libc aka libc6 does - you might want to look into that. Both
RedHat 5.x and Debian 2.0 are libc6 based distributions.

Yes, but RedHat 5.x uses PAM with pam_pwdb/libpwdb, which does not
support shadow passwords over NIS. You have to change all the
configuration files in /etc/pam.d/* to use pam_unix_auth_*

Linux is like a Vorlon.  It is incredibly powerful, gives terse,
cryptic answers and has a lot of things going on in the background.
