Description of problem:
Running yppasswd on either a client or a NIS server, I get:
Error while changing the NIS password.
The NIS password has not been changed on circe.ups-tlse.fr.
/var/log/messages on the server says:
Jan 25 19:36:29 circe rpc.yppasswdd: update robert (uid=500) from host
Jan 25 19:36:29 circe rpc.yppasswdd: now < minimum age for `robert'
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Linux circe 2.2.19-6.2.12 #1 Fri Oct 26 14:03:47 EDT 2001 i686 unknown
with all patches
It is possible to define a minimum time to gain change the password and
similar things. Seems this has been done on this server?

No, but I found that the problem is when using "kuser" to create an account. I
now use "linuxconf"
and it is OK.
If you create the account with kuser you can't change the password with
yppasswd, but you can if you create the account with linuxconf?
Can you change the password using just "passwd"?
I was not able to reproduce this in the latest versions of yp + kuser, and this
seems to have been more of a kuser bug. Closing.
