RE: whoami: cannot find username for UID 1001
But fixing ypserver is easy. Take it off line here and tell me what your

If ypserver on Debian is like all the other Linuxs out there /etc/passwd and
/var/yp/make are easy to fix.

My (Intel) NIS server lost a handful of files from /var during a reboot over
Uh oh, tried to fix it remotely and got myself into a heap of trouble...
problem is pretty serious, I'll have to go in and fix it.
One question: why did my Intel clients still work in spite of this problem?
