Re: mkpasswd -d doesn't return all users from NT domain

Well, I spent more time searching in the mailing list archive and on google and couldn't come up with posts that had the same issue.
Most of the posts I could find would get an error message when they tried to use mkpasswd -d

I don't get an error message but I actually get the first 12 entries of the domain user list. Same thing when I try the mkpasswd -l on the actual Primary Domain Controller. Again I don't get an error message but the first 12 users of the ~400 users.

Thanks again for any info/help/suggestion

You might want to check the archives on this topic. There was some
discussion of the different domain controller configurations and it's
affect on mkpasswd. You might find some of that discussion useful for
your problem.

Good luck,
