SUMMARY: NIS to NIS+ Transition

Original Question:

>After I manually gave the users new passwords, everything works great.
>How can I get these passwords moved over?


nisaddent -d -t passwd.org_dir shadow >passwd.shadow

Then copy the old encrypted passwords into the password fields in the file

nisaddent -p -m -f passwd.shadow -t passwd.org_dir shadow
At our site we had been only using the password file, instead of placing
an "x" and using the shadow file. Therefore the above works great.
