Local/Domain Login Anomaly

By d.jones092 ·
Hello.

Got a strange issue going on with one of my workstations. The workstation is a brand new Win2k Pro build. We unboxed it today and slapped the OS onto it (we don't use any imaging software or anything...small outfit...doing it the hard way). Any-hoo...when it came time to put our apps on it, we noticed that we're able to map certain drives, access certain files on servers within the domain. However, this machine has not yet been joined to the AD. We confirmed that it was logged in with the local administrator account. The only thing I can think of is that our back-door admin local admin account/pw is the same as our Builtin\Administrator account in our network. Is it possible this is somehow allowing us to navigate the network?

Thanks for any info.

It is possible it the login names are the same and the passwords are the same. I did see this alot in NT4. If you configured the password for the local admin the same as your domain admin then try changing the local admin password and try the same resources.

Good Luck!

personally, I would be very worried if anyone could just jack in to an ethernet port anywhere in the office and be able to browse without having to log on let alone join the domain. .
