change passwd – permission denied (NIS)

Change passwd – permission denied (NIS) I setup a new NIS server and put the NIS source files in /var/yp/src/ The command line “passwd” gave me a permission denied when changing an NIS user’s password. A restart of yp fixed the problem for me.. Eventually I restarted NIS with: [bash] /usr/lib/netsvc/yp/ypstop /usr/lib/netsvc/yp/ypstart [/bash]
