SUMMARY: using netgroups to control logins in 2.6?

Date: Mon Sep 14 1998 - 10:08:58 CDT

  Thanks for the quick replies. Sorry I didn't record the names of those
who did reply. Too quick on the delete.

I needed to add:


to my /etc/passwd. The first allowed the users of my netgroup and the
second line allowed me to keep the names/logins matched to UID's on
files without allowing them to login. After this I needed to run
"pwconv" to 'sync' the passwd and shadow.

Once these were in place I just changed:

passwd: files nis
passwd: files compat

in /etc/nsswitch.conf and it's working nicely.
