NAME
     yppasswdd - configuration file for rpc.yppasswdd (NIS  pass-
     word 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 res-
     tricted shell check.

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