Migrating Linux users (NIS) to Windows 2000
I am using Linux RH6.1 for 160 users. We now have a Win2k server, to which
we want to migrate all Linux accounts, and keep all passwords synchronised
between Linux and Win2k Active Directory. I have MS Services for UNIX 2.0
I have setup NIS and NFS on the Linux server as required by SFU2.0. I am
stuck at the MS Wizard question "Specify the location of the UNIX NIS map
source files". To me it appears that it should be "/var/yp" or
"/var/yp/mycompany.co.in" on my Linux box. I tried both and failed.
On reading SFU2.0 documentation, I find that NIS databases are to be in
dbm format, however, the files on my Linux box are having *.db extension.
I renamed them to *.dbm and failed. On reading NIS documentation, I found
that there is a "ASCII to DBM convertor", but I am unable to locate this
There was another option of user mapping, which had a button,
"List all UNIX users", pressing which succesfully retrieved all but the
latest user on Linux. Which file did it read??
Any idea, how to proceed??
