etc/passwd and login failure
I work in a lab with a group of various computers networked together each running different versions of redhat linux. One computer running redhat 8.0 has a nfs mounted harddrive. My boss wants it so that if audry logged in on one computer put a file into the hard drive audry logged into another computer can access it.
Originally he wanted me to copy and paste the files from /etc/passwd, /etc/shadow, and /etc/group from one computer to another, but this apparently doesnt work at all.
When i try to login to the computer i copied the files onto
it gives me the error
"Could not open or create the file home/audry/.gconfig-test-locking-file this indicates that there may be a problem with your configuration as many programs will need to create files in your home directory the error was 'permission denied'(errno = 13)''
is there a safer way of doing this,... He really wants me to get this done
any help is greatly appreciated
