Possible reasons could be a disk full situation or incorrect/wrong naming service.

I do not use any naming service but file and the disk is not full (I use 40 GB hard drive - 500 MB for swap, 2 GB for /etport/home and the rest is for /).
All the entries in /etc/nsswitch.conf are configured for files.
Where should I find out more? Thanks.

# useradd -d /export/home/username -m username

should be something like the above...
