Well, to me this sounds like he just tried 'getent passwd' and 
not for example 'getent passwd administrator'... 
IMHO it is not exactly obvious, that the fact, that 'getent passwd' 
does not list the domain users, does not guarantee, that there is 
a problem. Hence Rowland explicitly asked for 'getent passwd 
<a domain user>', yet his answer is a bit unclear. 

So I just wanted to emphasize Rowland's point.
