RPC.YPPASSWDD(8)		   BSD System Manager's Manual			 RPC.YPPASSWDD(8)

NAME
     rpc.yppasswdd -- NIS update password file daemon

SYNOPSIS
     rpc.yppasswdd [-d directory] [-noshell] [-nogecos] [-nopw] [-m arg1 [arg2 ...]]

DESCRIPTION
     rpc.yppasswdd must be running on the NIS master server to allow users to change information
     in the password file.

     The options are as follows:

	   -d directory    Change the root directory of the password file from ``/'' to
			   directory.  It is important to create the binary database files
			   (pwd.db and spwd.db) when using this switch or the password change
			   will fail.  The databases need to be created only once with the fol-
			   lowing command:

				 pwd_mkdb -d directory directory/etc/master.passwd

	   -noshell	   Don't allow changes of the shell field in the passwd file.

	   -nogecos	   Don't allow changes of the gecos field in the passwd file.

	   -nopw	   Don't allow changes of the password in the passwd file.

	   -m arg1 [arg2 ...]
			   Additional arguments to pass to make in /var/yp.

FILES
     /etc/passwd
     /etc/master.passwd
