[sudo-users] sudo and NIS problems

This is not a sudo-specific problem.

It sounds like you set the passwd database file access to "paranoid"
either on the local machine or the NIS server.  If you change it
to "secure" sudo should work again.

You should be able to check the settings on the local machine via
yast2 in Security -> Local.

See the file /etc/permissions/paranoid for more info.

run SuSE]
