Description Rex Dieter 2002-04-04 16:54:59 EST
Running a skipjack NIS client (against a rh6.2 NIS server), any attempt to 
login (at console, telnet, ssh, whatever) to a NIS-supplied account fails.  
This would be a killer if I were to try to deploy redhat 7.3 en-mass at our 
Some logging details... The following lines are then enterred into 
(Here's a telnet attempt): 
Apr  4 14:53:07 host xinetd[892]: START: telnet pid=1571 from= 
Apr  4 14:53:09 host login: User account has expired 
 (Here's a ssh attempt): 
Apr  4 15:48:57 host sshd[2424]: Connection closed by 
Apr  4 15:49:03 host sshd[2443]: PAM rejected by account configuration[13]: 
User account has expired 
This same server successfully serves a multitude of boxes from RedHat 6.2 - 
RedHat 7.2 clients without incident.  I'm not sure where the problem lies 
(pam, shadow-utils?, ypserv, ypbind).  Any suggestions?
