Unable To Successfully Change Root Password
The host is an NIS client operating within an HPUX NIS environment.
What the problem is:
As user root, I am unable to successfully change the root password. Here is what happens whenever I attempt to do so:
I also created a test user account that is local to the host and is not
an NIS user account. I was also unsuccessful in trying to change the test user's password.
Please note that SELinux is disabled. Also, the root file system is mounted R/W
The /var/log/secure entry shows this:
Sep 4 11:26:12 nvger1 passwd: gkr-pam: couldn't update the 'login' keyring password: no old password was entered
Any ideas on what is preventing me from changing the root password and how this can be fixed? Thanks in advance.
