I was having trouble changing passwords on the NIS Client machines.
First, You have to add to your rc.local file a line to actually startup
the rpc.yppasswdd daemon. There is a bug in version 4.1; it fails to
recognize the first argument passed to it so you might want to throw th
/usr/etc/rpc.yppasswd -noshell -m passwd
For all those who told me I needed to use the yppasswd command and not
the passwd command ... as it turns out in 4.1.1 you can use the passwd on
the clients to change the password.
Thanks for the help.
