    Quick HOWTO - Configuring NIS - yppasswdd error

    Think we found an error in the Configuring NIS Howto...
    http://www.linuxhomenetworking.com/w...onfiguring_NIS
    Code:
    Daemon Errors
    
    The yppasswdd daemon must be running on both the client and server for 
    password changes to work correctly. When they aren't running, you'll get errors.
    
    [root@smallfry etc]# yppasswd -p nisuser
    yppasswd: yppasswdd not running on NIS master host ("bigboy").
    yppasswdd should NOT run on both the client & server, or you may see this error "yppasswdd not running on NIS master".
