    Solved, the error was a not synced master.passwd and a passwd file in the /etc dir.

    To sync the /etc/master.passwd file and generate an /etc/passwd file from it, I think the command is..


    pwd_mkdb -p /etc/master.passwd

    although im not 100% sure of what this command does, this has worked for me when restoring blanked master.passwd files on BSD from backup.

    master.passwd backups are stored in
    ./var/backups and can be REALLY handy if you delete your main master.passwd file for whatever reason.,
