mkpasswd - NetUserEnum return code 53?

Hi, list ...

I still have some problems setting up a ssh-connection to the
machines on our Extranet. While fighting with various dragons
at the same time, this one really drives me nuts:

When invoking "mkpasswd -d" on our Extranet, it returns the

$ mkpasswd -d
NetUserEnum() failed with error 53.

I have searched all the CYGWIN mailing lists,,
every programming book I found and various (meta) search
engines now, but nothing was there explaining what the return
code 53 means, nore (and this is hurting even more) how I
can make this error go away. 

Any help would REALLY be appreciated.
