To explain the same thing twice in the same morning:
SYSTEM is a local account; it has utmost (rooter-than-root) priviliges on
your local machine but it's not a member of the domain and has no access
Did you know you can combine both flags ? "mkpasswd -l -d" should work
Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
