I ran this one by our sysadmin, and this was his answer:

 This is not a Solaris problem but an annex problem. I assume that you
 have the annex terminal server set up to use the same passwords as
 the solaris machine. You need to add the users to the annex passwd
 file as well as the solaris passwd file. The annex manuals or annex
 support will probably tell you how.

Hope this helps. (tm)
