    871234
      Hi,
      when i am trying to add oracle user its giving error;
      UX: /usr/sbin/useradd: ERROR: Inconsistent password files. See pwconv(1M).
      I ran pwconv,pwck,grpck and
      cat /etc/passwd | wc -l
      cat /etc/shadow | wc -l to check the files for mismatching lines but no errors found and the user also not existed in these two files please tell me the problem.

      Thanks,
      KK.
