Re: Cygwin & Domain Users

I recently got a new laptop, and my account is part of a domain and
not a local one. As such, the cygwin config doesn't recognize it. My
first thought was to just edit /etc/passwd file, but I can't figure
out what my account's SUID is (that big long identifier that Win2k
uses). I'm sure once I look at a guide for the formatting of the file,
I can get the other factors. Does anyone know how to get that? Easier
still, does anyone know how to easily add my account to the file, or
to the cygwin setup? As for various needed details, this is a fresh
install of cygwin from 8/18/03 on Windows 2000.
Thanks in advance.
Try mkpasswd -d -u <your username> >> /etc/passwd
