In the above order:

$ id

uid=<LONGNUMBER>(<MYDOMAIN>+<MYUSERID>) gid=<OTHERLONGNUMBER>(<MYDOMAIN>+Domain Users) groups=<LONG LIST OF GROUPS>

$ mkpasswd

Shows a long list of domain users, but doesn't include me. (This is what my original mail was all about.)

$ net user

Shows a short list of local (?) users, not including my account.
