Hi there,

well it seems to me that you have not the right entries in the /etc/passwd file, so the user arent taken from the NIS server.
Thats why he trys to understand the UID and it comes along with the number.

The passwd should contain a last line

+::::::

the etc/groups

+:::

there also has to be made changes against /etc/nsswitch.conf

maybe there are more details in yast
