Looking at the code (which you can find here
it appears either NetUserGetInfo() or NetUserEnum()
is failing. Seems like a strange error message but perhaps it makes more
sense in context. Since I cannot reproduce it, I cannot be of more help.
mkgroup doesn't give an error message. Why mkpasswd does and mkgroup does
not might be pertinent -- don't they use similar mechanisms? What do they do
Because they are looking for different information. See
