Logging on to a Win NT domain

By grotherd ·
Why can't I logon as a user of my domain even after I have sucessfully connected using Windows XP Professional? If I log on locally I can map drives to my domain by entering my domain user credentials.

The XP box you are logging into must also be a member of the NT domain. It must be listed in the Server Manager program, in the Workstations section, on the NT PDC.
YOu can only log onto an NT domain FROM a NT domain member machine.

hope this helps

I have checked the NT domain and the computer is listed. I have even recreated it manually on the Server. I can log on locally to the PC and connect to my resources on the domain using my NW creditals but cannot logon from the Ctrl Alt Del screen directly onto the Server

When you're logged in locally, see if you can add your domain account to the local Power Users or Admin Group.

Apparently it's already added the machine - it's just confused on the user account. Try giving the local administrator (temporarily) the same password as the NT server domain administrator, then reboot and try to logon to the domain with administrator and password.

(Also remember that a new user profile is created on the XP machine each time you logon as someone different, locally and domain-wise, so you may want to adjust those).

Good luck!

Remove your pc from the server manager(Every Workstation you see in the server manager it doesn't mean that they are member of your domain).
Re-Add your pc name on the Domain. That mean right click on My computer\Properties\Computer Name\Change ...Member of -->Put your domain. You must have a userID with rights to add workstation on a domain. Also you should change your computername.
