Description michael.waite 1999-05-28 12:25:31 EDT
When you run yppasswd "username" the password gets changed and then the deamon dies. ie rpc.yppasswdd. A core gets generated. If you restart the deamon you can then change another password before it then dies. We are running this on a Compaq Proliant 5500 dual 400 zeons. I sent mail to Thursten and he says that he can't duplicate it and is not going to do anything to fix it because he needs to see more bug reports.

Fixed in ypserv-126.96.36.199-2.

*** Bug 3478 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. *** I have found that rpc.yppasswdd dies every time you run "yppasswd username". I have confirmed this with several other members of firstname.lastname@example.org. Thorsten Kukuk had no answer as he can not replicate the problem on their os. I have updated the yp tools to the latest ypserv-188.8.131.52 vintage and the problem remains. The mail list members that are experiencing the same problem that I am, all agree that it has nothing to do with pilot error on yp client installations as we get the same errors on hpux, Tru64UNIX, Redhat Linux, etc etc etc.

*** Bug 3826 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. *** I'm running an NIS master with the rpc.yppasswdd deamon running (started from /etc/rc/init.d/yppasswdd). Every time a user uses yppasswd to change his/her password, the rpc.yppasswdd correctly makes the change and then dies. Happens every time. I then have to manually restart rpc.yppasswdd, but then after the next user uses yppasswd, rpc.yppasswdd is dead again. Surely there is a reason for this? Any ideas? System: RedHat 6.0 in Intel PII machines.

*** Bug 4724 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. *** When I try to change a NIS password, the first time all goes right. Before the password change, the YPPASSWD service stops, resulting in an RPC's Unable to receive error. I've managed to partially solution this problem editing the /etc/rc.d/init.d/yppasswd script and creating another script that calls the previous script after the yppasswd command.
