Thank you for all that reply my message.

I resolved my problem installing SunOS4.1.3.

Here it is my original question:

>I use NIS in my network. I have workstations with SunOS and Solaris.
>The NIS master is in the SunOS. Yesterday I use C2conv command to become
>NIS more secure. I applyied patches 100482-08 and 100564-05. I include
>Aupwdauthd and AUyppasswdd at /etc/passwd and /etc/security/passwd.adjunct.
>When a try to change a NIS user passwd I am receiving this message:
>"Changing of adjunct passwords not supported."
>When I try to change a local user passwd I am receiving this message:
>"User teste missing from password file."
>Do you know why it is happen this problem? What can I do?

>The user can be logged in, look at:
>telnet cuia
>Trying xxxxxx...
>Connected to xxxxx.
>Escape character is '^]'.
>SunOS UNIX (xxxxx)
