I have a Linux NIS server setup that appears to work just fine, however
when I try to use a Solaris client the password is not accepted.
I know NIS is working fine because if I use an encrypted password from
the Solaris shadow file by pasting into the Linux shadow file the NIS
client works perfect. However if I generate a password on Linux the
NIS client fails.
The Linux NIS server creates a much longer encryped password compared
to the Solaris client.
I'm using SuSE 9.2 and Solaris 2.6.
Is there a way to make Solaris recognize the longer Linux encryption or
else make the Linux encryption shorter?
