- Subject: Can not Contact Domain Controller
Everytime I open the Cygwin Console I get the
Your group is currently "mkpasswd". This indicates
the /etc/passwd (and possibly /etc/group) files should
See the man pages for mkpasswd and mkgroup then, for
mkpasswd -l [-d] > /etc/passwd
mkgroup -l [-d] > /etc/group
Note that the -d switch is necessary for domain users.
So I have tried to do this:
mkgroup -l -d > /etc/group
mkpasswd -l > /etc/passwd
$ mkpasswd -u "mblanco" -d "bgchemical.com" >
mkpasswd (731):  Could not find domain
controller for this domain.
I can never contact my domain controller, which is on
the same machine as the cygwin.
Any help is appreiciated.
