 NIS in linux(no shadow) with solaris (shadow)?
I want to use linux for NIS server, but some problem happen.

My new machine's OS is solaris 7 ,which use shadow passwords,
cannot be used NIS client.
I think it is because each uses different password storing method.
How can I do?

No, the encryption used in /etc/shadow is the same as in /etc/passwd.
It is _possible_ that your Linux server uses MD5 hashing of the
passwords, though, in which case you have a problem.

We use /etc/shadow only for the root password, the other passwords are
available via NIS.  You can do this by specifying "passwd: files nis"
in /etc/nsswitch.conf.  Or "passwd: compat" if you like to use the
+@netgroup syntax in /etc/passwd (I do!).
