Description of problem:
Running yppasswd on either a client or a NIS server, I get:

The NIS password has not been changed on circe.ups-tlse.fr.

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.
Comment 3 Alexander Larsson 2002-03-26 10:54:16 EST
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"?
Comment 4 Alexander Larsson 2002-03-26 17:37:09 EST
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.
