I have setup a NIS server on a master suse 11.1 server, which syncs users betweem several servers.
I login the master server with a ssh client ,and I can add a user with useradd.
But when I update a user’s primary group with usermod like:
‘usermod -g testgroup testuser’,which means change the primary group of user named ‘testuser’ to ‘testgroup’.
The system given a error:
RPC: Timed out.
and nothing is changed.
But if I do the same operations though YaST , it’s works.
