I'm a software developer who finds himself the SA stuckee when one SA went on vacation right after the other one quit. We have a network of redhat/solaris machines with a solaris NIS server. I want to create local accounts for an sftp server on the network without granting network accounts. I also want to create a local group specific to these accounts to manage access.
How do I keep the network and local group IDs and user IDs from conflicting with the NIS IDs?
