I would like to migrate a blowfish encrypted /etc/passwd from another distribution to RHEL. Is this possible?
NIS server algorithm is changed from MD5 to blowfish on the NIS Server. NIS server is not RHEL. Now, RHEL NIS client is not able to authenticate via blowfish algorithm.
Can we enable BlowFish instead of MD5 in RHEL 5?
