NIS, NIS-slave, Samba
Date: Fri, 2 Jan 2004 11:09:44 +0100
We've built a Suse linux cluster using drbd, and now we want to make sure we
have a centralized passwd database using NIS.
Our configuration is as follows:
primary linux server, secondary linux server, samba, W2000 clients.
If the primary linux server fails, heartbeat makes sure the secondary linux
server takes over all relevant services, so users won't even notice.
What we don't have, is synchronization of /etc/passwd, /etc/group from
primary to secondary and v.v., so if a user is added, or a password is
the secondary server has to be updated manually for now...
Has anyone tried to setup NIS en NIS-slave to solve this?
What will happen when our primary server fails and a user wants to change
Thanks in advance,
