    So what do you do when namuserlist works (both before and after the procedure listed above) but you still get the error shown above ??

    namuserlist -x ou=site,o=org
    novlxregd:x:81:81:Novell XRegD System User:/var/opt/novell/xtier/xregd:/bin/false
    novlxsrvd:x:82:81:Novell XSrvD System User:/var/opt/novell/xtier/xsrvd:/bin/false
