21.3.7 Credential Setup Clients

Setting Up Credentials for Client Hosts

1. Login as root on the root master server and define the client host as a principal. You'll be prompted for the root password of the client host. You can also add the client host to the group nisadmin.acs.ohio-state.edu.
# nisaddcred -p unix.host_name@acs.ohio-state.edu -P host_name.acs.ohio-state.edu. des

To allow the root user on the client host to update the maps, add that host to the NIS+ group, nisadmin.acs.ohio-state.edu.
# nisgrpadm -a nisadmin.acs.ohio-state.edu. host_name.acs.ohio-state.edu.

Login as root on the client host and enter the password for root of that host.
# keylogin -r

If the root user on the client host is to update the maps, then on the client host set the environmental variable NIS_GROUP. To do this permanently add this variable to /.profile and /.login, e.g.
# setenv NIS_GROUP nisadmin.acs.ohio-state.edu.
