RE: Domain group doesn't work in cygwin

I just check,
What you name Computer_X is our domain name (a la netbios, pre windows
It's not a computer, it can't be ping ...

I will try your workaround.

So you are on Computer_A and the user is defined on Computer_B In
/etc/passwd, there is a line defining the user, with a computer name in it,
something like U-Computer_X\mind_mgr What is Computer_X?

What's probably happening is that Cygwin can't obtain the user's groups from
Computer_X What  "mkgroup -u -d Computer_X" produce?
Ditto "mkpasswd -u mind_mgr -d Computer_X"

Edit /etc/group and add user mind_mgr (and any others) at the end of lines
of the groups they should belong to but don't, e.g.

The same result may be obtained by "mkgroup -u -l -d" (without domain name),
but that may give rise to a file that is very (and uselessly) large.
