Thanks to all the responed.  I do really appreciate it.

The problem was with a couple of setting in OpenBoot.  Upon doing a
printenv, I found out that the following were set to false:


This was causing the Ultra to wait for carrier detect, and it wasn't
getting it.  So, the following command entered in OB fixed this:

setenv ttyb-ignore-cd true


setenv ttya-ignore-cd true

I then did a reset-all and everything worked great.

Once again, thanks to all that helped - I really appreciate it.

Subject: NIS and passwd expiry

Hi Gurus,

I understand that solaris  NIS  does not support password expiry.
But I was looking for some scripts/hacks which can help me in doing
that as there is problem in moving to NIS+ .We are having Nis master 
on Solaris 5.5.1 ,clients are solaris/Linux boxes and  yppasswd is used
for changing passwd.

Essentially I am looking for the following 

- auto password expiry after centain interval and prompt for passwd.
- Notifying users say  before 7 days of expiry.
- Declining to take used passwds.

Any help/pointers would be welcome.
