I have created NIS server with 1 NIS slave and its working fine. We are planning to use this NIS for multiple client with different users and have read that with NETGROUP I could specify certain users to be able to just login to a specific client servers.. I'm able to create netgroup policy in /etc/netgroup and run $ make netgrp. At the client server, I was able to list the netgroup policy $ypcat -k netgroup.byuser but still any users were able to login to my client server.
In NIS Master server
In NIS Client1 server
$ypcat -k netgroup.byuser
$ypcat -k netgroup.byhost
And still I'm able to login any client to my client1 server.. Am I lacking something? Do I need to add something on my /etc/passwd? please help.. thanks
