Re: [suse-security] password change on NIS as root?

Good morning,

I just delete the password entry in /var/yp/src/shadow, do a make and change the 
password with <passwd> as root by leaving 'Old Password:' empty and put in the 
new one. That is the only way it works that I found.

Greetings,	Kurt
