comment Ubuntu errouneously telling me that a username is already taken
Thanks for the explanation, but it seems an odd way of going about things (for a mostly non-Linux user). What would happen if I reversed the actions for example? Say I created the user dgard locally first, and then added the machine to a domain using Likewise? It just seems inconsistent, as I doubt it would prevent the machine from joining the domain? Thanks.

Thanks, but my webserver does not have a desktop, so I have to do it via terminal.

comment Ubuntu errouneously telling me that a username is already taken
@steeldriver - getent passwd dgard retunrs David Gard:/home/likewise-open/DD/dgard:/bin/bash. I am using Likewise to connect to a Windows domain, but it seems odd that this would prevent me from having a local user with the same username as a domain user? Thanks.

@BrunoPereira - thanks, but that just lists the same usernames as when I veiw the /etc/passwd file, and 'dgard' is not included.
