So NIS+ isn’t that difficult. Getting all the clients working the way I want should be interesting, since one of them is a 6.2 host.

Anyone know if sendmail will deliver to a user that’s only got an entry in the NIS+ tables, and not a local passwd account?

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    Ermmm…. you’re talking about NIS and not NIS+, correct? There’s no NIS+ server that I know of for Linux ;-)

    yeah, NIS and not NIS+. It’s just that nsswitch says “nisplus” so I’m just used to thinking it.

    I wonder if I need to just add entries to /etc/passwd with a + to get sendmail to deliver mail locally for that user….
