We can't change nis password on your server using yppaswd : after 
"Retype New Password:" server says "yppasswd: pam_chauthtok(): error in 
service module".
In /var/log/messages :
 <kern.info> nisserver kernel: pid 5196 (rpc.yppasswdd), uid 0: exited 
on signal 11
 <user.err>  nisserver yppasswd: in pam_sm_chauthtok(): 
yppasswd_local(): NIS password update failed: 
monstrogoth.esil.univ-mrs.fr: RPC: Unable to receive; errno = Connection 
reset by peer
In /var/yp/ : a new file named  pw.XXXXXX containing the first lines of 
master.passwd.vim ( 67 of 827 )

If we restart rpc.yppasswdd and try again, the same error occurs, and a 
new file pw.XXXXXX of the same length is created.

Any help appreciated.
