pkgadd fails with 'unable to find user noaccess'

I used root to install on dozens of Solaris 10 x86 without issue
but this server gave me this issue.  Pkg is not corrupt as I
compared its size with another good working pkg:

# pkgadd -d ./Agent-Solaris_5.10_U7-9.0.0-5000.x86_64.pkg

The following packages are available:
  1  ss-agent     XXXXXXX Agent
                  (x86_64) 9.0.0-5000

Select package(s) you wish to process (or 'all' to process
all packages). (default: all) [?,??,q]: all

Processing package instance <ss-agent> from </var/tmp/Agent-Solaris_5.10_U7-9.0.
0-5000.x86_64.pkg>

XXXXXXX (x86_64) 9.0.0-5000

You must have "noaccess" user on a solaris system
usually it is uid 60002 and gid 60002 on fresh solaris install.

I did compare other Solaris servers (of the same version) that I have in our
environment: they don't have noaccess nor any user with uid 60002 in
/etc/passwd but installation went through for them (at least 300+ of them).

It's just this one VM that's odd

Or could it be checkinstall script was 'tampered' with?
Got to check it out in 2 days' time as I'm on medical leave
