Maybe one of you NIS+ gurus can help me on this. I have an account
(I'll call it test) set up in NIS+ that I want to make a local account on two
seperate SUN SPARC 20's. I set up the "test" account locally using the
same UID as in NIS+ and then deleted the account in NIS+. After waiting
30 minutes I try to log on as "test" on one of the machines. It accepts
the userid and password but gets hung up running /usr/sbin/quota.
When I kill quota it gets hung up running /usr/lib/mail. If I kill the mail
process I get a shell prompt and everything is fine.
Anybody have any clues as to why quota and mail are getting hung.
NIS+ is driving me crazy!!!!
