I was troubleshooting this for another admin when the problem occured. I have since found out that they have installed SFU 3.5 from Microsoft which is a product that verifies the unix passwd with a policy on a windows box. The new password didn't meet the criteria so a permission denied was returned. Thanks for the input from multiple folks.
Original question:
I do get a permission denied after the "passwd changed " statement. I have ran pwconv and checked permissions on /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow. I have tried taking the nis out of nsswitch.conf for the passwd word line and still no luck.

Original question:

I have a Solaris 9 box running NIS. When I enter the command passwd <username> the prompt hangs for about 2 minutes and finally returns and accepts the new password. After the re-enter passwd section, I will eventually see the message about passwd successfully changed but then will be asked to please try again. I have stop and restarted NIS.
