OL8 NIS client, checks out network license as wrong user

User_ZHZXO Member Posts: 1 Green Ribbon

Hi All,

we have a number of machines that are NIS clients, mostly CentOS 7 some Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, and a couple of OL8, the OL8 ones and only the OL8 ones check out flexlm licenses (Matlab and other applications) from our license server as the last user in the local /etc/passwd file rather than the logged in (NIS) user.

all clients are configured the same (/etc/nsswitch.conf, yp.conf etc.)

any ideas as to why
