thanks for your replies and sorry for that bandwidth. It was no error with NIS.
Our computer center has provided some scripts for updating NIS tables and
in one of these scripts it is disabled to change given passwords. We only
can create initial passwords.

Thanks again

Thema:    NIS doesn't update changes in passwd table

we have a large ascii passwd source with >1000 entries.
If i change an entry and do a make, the table will be pushed but the changes are
not propagated.
This is on a solaris 2.7 server.
What's wrong with it.
