passwd command does not work. I think it is because user does not exits in /etc/passwd file. users and groups ared in ldap database. I am using SLC 4.6 on client side. When I used passwd command following message displays: "/usr/kerberos/bin/kpasswd: Cannot resolve network address for KDC in requested realm getting initial ticket"
