yppasswdd(4)                     File Formats                     yppasswdd(4)



NAME
       yppasswdd - configuration file for rpc.yppasswdd (NIS password daemon)

SYNOPSIS
       /etc/default/yppasswdd

DESCRIPTION
       The  yppasswdd  file contains a parameter that modifies the behavior of
       the rpc.yppasswdd(1M) daemon.

       The yppasswdd file contains a single parameter:

       #check_restricted_shell_name=1

       By default in the current release, this line in yppasswdd is  commented
       out.  If  you  uncomment  the  line, when a user attempts to change his
       default  shell  using  `passwd  -r  nis  -e`  (see   passwd(1)),    the
       rpc.yppasswdd  daemon  checks  whether  the  name of the user's current
       shell begins with an 'r'. rpc.yppasswdd considers any  shell whose name
       begins  with  an 'r' (for example, rcsh) to be a restricted shell. If a
       user's shell does begin with  'r',  his  attempt  to  change  from  the
       default shell will fail.

       If  the  line in the yppasswdd file is commented out (the default), the
       rpc.yppasswdd daemon does not perform the restricted shell check.

       The yppasswdd file is editable only by root or  a  member  of  the  sys
       group.
