The solution was to install patch 105397-02.
The original question was:
> Recently I upgraded one of our servers from Solaris 2.5.1 to Solaris
> 2.6. After upgrading useradd command become very slow. It takes up
> to 10 minutes to add a single user on an almost idle Ultra Enterprise
> It seems that useradd calls passmgmt program which copies passwd and
> shadow files into ptmp and stmp, and this coping takes ages to finish.
> Passwd and shadow files have more than 10000 entries. All recommended
> patches are installed on the system. Nscd daemon is running with
> default configuration.
> Does anybody else have this problem, and is there any other solution
> other than writing my own useradd program or waiting for patches
> (assuming problem is not cosed by me misconfiguring something)?
