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
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
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.
