did you create the user with "pts adduser"?

this would be afs user - unix/linux system does not recognises this on
it's own (not sure if there is name service switch component for this).

our set up:
	ldap - user details (user name, group membership)
	kerberos5 - login credentials/principals + passwords
	afs servers - volumes + also hold user names

the three have to be kept in sync in order for the system to work, i.e.
ldap user-name, kerberos user-name@somewhere, afs (pts entries) have to
be in sync.


ldap			user1
kerberos5		user1@my-kerberos-domain.com
pts listentries		has to list the user1

use appropriate tools for adding the user to each component...

corrections welcome.
