Hello all,

I created an account, lets say user37

but when I try to change the owner of a file (in the volume created for
that user) for example with

chown user37.faculty test.tst
chown: `user37.faculty': invalid user

when I do:
# pts e -na user37
Name: user37, id: 1337, owner: system:administrators, creator: admin,
  membership: 1, flags: S----, group quota: 20.

# pts m -na kstewart
Groups user37 (id: 1337) is a member of:

if I try an su user37

# su user37
su: user user37 does not exist

Any ideas about what is going on here ?
(oh and the user is in ldap, I checked that)



 It's is not, it isn't ain't, and it's it's, not its, if you mean
 it is. If you don't, it's its. Then too, it's hers. It isn't
 her's. It isn't our's either. It's ours, and likewise yours and
