Admin rights on 2000

By schiff6 ·
On my Windows NT machine and server, I have admin rights. I often have to add domains to a computer. But, on our new 2000 machine, I can't add a domain. It tells me I do not have admin rights on that machine. How do I change that?

Admin rights on 2000

Log on with the local administrator account for the machine. That should work. Once you have joined the domain, you can log on with your domain account and have admin rights locally on the machine.

Tried logging on with local administrator - wouldn't let me add the domain.

Log in as local administrator (like above), but when it asks you to enter in the username and password when you attempt to join the domain, enter in your account information like this:

Username: domainname\useraccount
Password: password

Where 'domainname' is the name of the domain where you have your admin rights, and the userid is the valid userid with the rights to add computers to the domain.

I hope this is what you are seeing... basically Win2k (if this is the situation of which I'm thinking) needs to know where to go to authenticate your admin id so it can add itself to the domain.

Good luck!
