Whenever I try to “su” to a specific NIS user I get this error.
I have no problem to su to other NIS users, only with one specific.

The system is AIX 7.1
How do I fix it?
Thanks,
Tal

This is often related to group IDs.

Is the primary group ID of the user in question resolveable to a group name, by means of the "groups" maps of NIS or the local /etc/group" file?
