Tools NIS users cann't login on AIX and HP


I've set up a NIS domain with linux as master-server, slave server and clients ... and Linux works fine.

To that NIS domain I tried to add a HPUX 11.00 and an AIX 4.3.3 system (till now - there should be more clients in final version). And both systems now have to same problem:
I can "su - nisuser", but cann't login via telnet. Telnet brings "invalid user/passwd". Also I cann't find any logfile on the systems which points to that problem.

ypwhich and "ypcat passwd" brings both the correct output.

any ideas? more information needed?

Hi mod,

it looks like you had the users defined as "no login user". check the passwd. user with no login have a star instead of the password entry

user:*:uid:gid etc.

thx for reply, but thats not the problem ... All of the users have encrypted passwords in the second column. Also I can login on a linux-system but not on an HP or IBM-box.

I've tried for 3 days to setup 2 clients ... yesterday evening I tried it with a HPUX-NIS-Server and I've set up the HP-Server, one HP-Client and one IBM-Client in 15 minutes.

I'll use HP-UX now for the servers if Linux can bind to that server.
