Well, you're trying to add a user while unauthenticated (-noauth);
usually you need to be authenticated as an administrator in order to add
users. So, acquire admin credentials, or try running with -localauth
instead of -noauth.

Are you following a guide or something? If so, what exactly did it say
to do?
