Since setting my Cube up as a NetInfo master for my network (mainly for shared accounts on the sparcstation) I've somehow lost the ability to shutdown via "simple" methods. The reboot & shutdown buttons on login are grayed out, and the power button on the keyboard fails to do anything. All I can do is issue /etc/halt as root then in NMI press the power button and confirm. Has anyone else run into this issue? I've seen nothing like it.


NeXT Cube 040 (NeXTSTEP 3.3), SUN SparcStation5 (NeXTSTEP 3.3), SGI Indigo2 R10000 (IRIX 6.5.22), SGI VSW320 (Windows 2000/Slakware 9.1)
