your connection using the windows login name. Usually a PDC (Primary Domain
Controller) authenticates a user as being a valid network user (not a local
user) if you login to the domain. Because of this situation, you don't need
valid passwords inside your passwd: CVSNT will never use them with SSPI
connections. It only checks passwords when connected through pserver or rhosts.
