How to allow users to log on using NIS on AIX?


To allow users to log on with either the native Network Information Service (NIS) or Active Directory, you must remove the options = noprompt parameter in the CENTRIFYDC configuration section of the /usr/lib/security/methods.cfg file.

If you remove this parameter, however, you cannot specify the password prompt for Active Directory users.
