RE: [seul-edu] Alternatives to NIS
planning on going to NDS most likely. We're on NIS+ now with NIS backward
security hole - anyone with any UNIX machine that has root access to that
machine can become any NIS user without the need for a password. This is
one of the many reasons that I hate NIS.

Subject: [seul-edu] Alternatives to
A while back I seem to
remember someone saying NIS is "evil." Since my classroom network is now
stable enough to begin to expand from the present 7 machines, I want to
centralize access and passwords. What alternatives are there to NIS, or
should I just go with it?
