For the time being, yes. I think I documented this in
https://cygwin.com/cygwin-ug-net/ntsec.html. The windows UIs show the
owner of a file knowning the server to fetch the user info from. Cygwin
doesn't ATM, since the entire functionality to fetch the info is hidden
behind the getpwXXX/getgrXXX calls, which have no idea where this call
is coming from. For the time being, create /etc/passwd and /etc/group
entries for your other machines. Patches welcome to extend the getpw/
getgr functionality to fetch user info from non-local/non-AD machines.
