Failed password for invalid user




I am running cygwin 2.7.0 sshd service under a local cyg_server account.

I wanted to avoid case sensitive problems by duplicating users in
/etc/passwd, but I find mixed results:
I can login as "Administrator", "MYPC+Administrator" and "miabuela",
but not as "administrator" despite all of them being the same Window
user.

This is an excerpt of /etc/passwd:

$ cat /etc/passwd | grep 500
SSFE009W2012+Administrator:*:197108:197121:U-SSFE009W2012\Administrator,S-1-5-21-3863157116-1840367147-1613345037-500:/home/Administrator:/bin/bash
miabuela:*:197108:197121:U-SSFE009W2012\Administrator,S-1-5-21-3863157116-1840367147-1613345037-500:/home/Administrator:/bin/bash
Administrator:*:197108:197121:U-SSFE009W2012\Administrator,S-1-5-21-3863157116-1840367147-1613345037-500:/home/Administrator:/bin/bash
administrator:*:197108:197121:U-SSFE009W2012\Administrator,S-1-5-21-3863157116-1840367147-1613345037-500:/home/Administrator:/bin/bash

#Administrator@SSFE009W2012 /etc
$ uname -a
CYGWIN_NT-6.3-WOW SSFE009W2012 2.7.0(0.306/5/3) 2017-02-12 13:13 i686 Cygwin

The error I get in windows log is "Failed password for invalid user
administrator"


Thanks in advance,
Jesus
