when you set up an nis/nfs client box and try to login to it via  ssh  make sure you have tcsh installed if your login account uses tcsh

LOL - I haven't done that one before

Years ago when I was a new admin for a NIS/NFS configuration (about 50+ SGI workstations) - the first thing I did was modify the prompts on each workstation so we knew which one we were logged into while executing commands.  This was all started by witnessing a co-worker shutdown the server thinking he was on a new workstation we were setting up.  Nothing like having the entire engineering department posse seeking to place your head on a pike  Shocked

the funny thing is I told my coworker early on i thought it was a shell problem of some sort (since outgoing ssh worked, nfs mounts were in place, local nis logins worked, etc) but we bothered going through a thorough debugging , ssh reinstall, etc.... for at least an hour before getting down to trying shell changes  Grin

but yeh, you should see my command line prompts  Shocked

After reading this thread I have realized I am beyond stupid. Not only do I not understand half of what I have read, the other half I do understand doesn't make sense. I'll just stick with my screwdrivers and wrenches and just fix *feces*.

I need to go wash my blue collar shirts.
