I have installed the Windows 2000 Advanced Server with active directory and I have 1 Windows 2000 Professional Computers just for practice
On my server I have created two users ABC and XYZ.Both are able to login on to the server but when I tried to login ABC user in windows 2000 professional it gives me that Logon Failure error message,XYZ user is able to login and they can login in windows 2000 advanced server with the same password.

Second If i create any user then by default that user profile is stored in which directory in windows 2000 advanced server.

I would appreciate if someone provides me assistance on it.

make sure that the users log on to the domain when they use the workstation.

There are 2 log ons available, local and domain. If a user tries to log on locally using a domain user account they will be denied log on locally and vice versa. Using a local account to log on to a domain will result in denied log on to the domain.

There are things that you need to do in your network.
IP address.. Did you configure your server as a DHCP server ? If yes ? when you run the IPConfig .. were you abel to release and renew IP in your workstation ? If no try to resolve the DHCP server. If you are in a hurry assign static IP on your desktop and in the server so that they belong to same IP scheme.

Now the second thing that might be missing is making the desktop to join the Domain. If you got the windows "welcome to ___ domain" window then after reboot you will ready to log on to the network domain. Again always log on with a username that has administrative rights to complete the configuration and then ... next time you log in log with abc or xyz username ..
Good Luck
