domain login

By ldavid ·
I installed win2000 server (BDC), created the admin profile and domain etc. to match my NT server (PDC), but I can not signon to my domain (I only have the one domain). I can sign onto (this computer), but get the msg. "The system cannot log you on to this domain because the system's computer account in its primary domain is missing or the password on that account is incorrect." I've verified the password and the system's computer account (assuming it's the server I just loaded win2000 on. Whatam I doing wrong or where do I need to look?

Thanks in advance for any help on this.

Verify that the computer account shows up on the PDC. If not create it from the PDC and try to add it to the domain again from the BDC.

Windows 2000 cannot be a BDC in a NT 4.0 domain. In fact, there is not even a way to do this! Are you sure you are not simply trying to add it as a memebr server? That works fine, as long as you are not making it a DC. When you join the NT domain, it should prompt you for a login that has rights to create the machine account in the domain.
