I received the following error on a Solaris 8 SPARC 2/04 release (117350-50 patch level) system:

>  CMD: command
>  lntech 23415 c Fri Apr 25 10:34:00 2008
! bad user (lntech) Fri Apr 25 10:34:00 2008
<  lntech 23415 c Fri Apr 25 10:34:00 2008 rc=1

The user lntech is an LDAP account. The account is not expired, although I don't think this would matter (see SunSolve Document ID 204893). The user was added to /etc/cron.d/cron.allow, and could edit its crontab.

Restarting the cron daemon fixed the problem; sending the cron daemon a SIGHUP did not.
