The Windows account name with FULL admin privileges is "servicekonto" and cygwin was installed from this account which is locally on this client and NOT a domain user.
"kae026" is the user who can log in, but isn't in the password file. 
"kae026" is a domain user.

As admnistrator:

$ mkpasswd -l -d > /etc/passwd
mkpasswd (427): [5] Access is denied.

$ less /etc/passwd
