Intend to package NIS+ Utilities
A more detailed description of NIS+ support can be found at
Any support by an experienced developer would be appreciated.
The current version of nis-utils: 1.0
The NIS+ Utilities are a collection of NIS+ administration and testing tools.
They contain: nisaddcred,
nisaddent, niscat, nischgrp, nischmod, nischown, nischttl, nisdefaults,
niserror, nisgrep, nisgrpadm,
nisinit, nislog, nisls nismatch, nismkdir, nispath, nisping, nisrm, nisrmdir,
nistbladm, nistest and nisupdkeys.
With this, Linux could act as full NIS+ client. The shadow support from
nispasswd is missing, but the
other parts works. There are some first tries to write a NIS+ Server, but the
current sources are in
pre-alpha stage and doesn't work.
Other useful packages:
The Linux automounter autofs contains NIS+ support since version 3.1.0.
You could find it under ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/daemons/autofs/
NIS+ Administration tool:
Ralf Lehmann has written a NIS+ Administration tool (
nistool-0.1alpha.tar.gz ). You need perl-tk
