The NIS/YP systems works well across six of our servers (all Unix): one
has the password files and is NIS master, the others are slaves. I would
however be extremely interested (it has come up before on this group) in
methods of integrating an NT server into this, it seems likely that I
shall be forced to have one sometime this year. It seems to me there is no
way of making it a NIS slave, but the Unix systems can be configured as
slaves to the NT. But I would prefer to hear of front-end software that
will amend the password on both systems from one interface.
