I'm trying to get NIS working on two machines.
One is the server and the other is the client.
They are both connected through a hub.
I used the Linux NIS(YP)/NYS/NIS+ HOWTO by Thorsten Kukuk v1.3, 1 July 2003.
I'm using Mandrake Linux version 9.1 operating system.
The configuration for the server works.
The configuration for the client works except for a small problem!.
I followed the steps of '7. Setting Up the NIS client'.
The problem is that when I try to log on to the client as root it will not let me.
I can log on as the users I set up but not root.
The error message I get as I boot the client is as follows:
starting sshd: Privilege separate user sshd does not exist.
As I stated above I followed the HOWTO exactly.
Can I fix the problem or do I have to start again and
is there away to remote log in from the server to fix the problem.
