This "password entry" is - on Unix - the users entry in the passwd file 
or in NIS or - on Windows - the users entry in the user database of the 
host or the domain.
This error message just tells you that the system call getpwnam(2) failed.

This is a completely different password entry.

The user does not exist in the domain or the default domain of the host 
is set wrong. The "pdomain" command tells you what the default (or 
principal) domain of the host is.
