What does the message "Who are you" mean?

| |

This error message occurs when a login machine has a truncated passwd map (not everyone who should be listed is). The problem clears up when the backend machine pushes a new password file (every 15 minutes) or we force a push by hand. This is why the problem usually clears up shortly after being reported.

If this error occurs, one way to check the machine, where is error was reported from, is to run the command

ypmatch username passwd

(where "username" would be replaced by your username) and see if you are recognized. If not, please call the NBCS Help Desk at 732-445-HELP
