- Subject: mkpasswd
I'm running cygwin 1.3.9 on a NT40 server.
I've created /etc/passwd by issuing mkpasswd -du selected-id >> /etc/passwd .
I'm having a problem with one id. this id is domain id and has been added
to the local admin group.
when I logon to the server with this id and start cygwin, the shell comes
up and says I don't have any name.
so I issue the whoami command and it comes back with uid 30823. The passwd
file records for this id shows a uid of 96359.
when I replace the 96359 with 30823 the shell seems to act correctly.
Does anyone know why I'm getting different (and incorrect uid) for this or
any id ?
