Windows 2000 Professional Dual Logon

By gideon.goldstein ·
I have just installed Win 2K on a machine that ran Win 98SE.

The machine is on a local domain.

For some reason I can either:
A. login to the machine as an administrator (or user or whatever) but have no access to network resources (Internet works fine).

B. Login to the domain but have no admin permissions on the machine.

I need both without switching.

In control panel I do not have the check-box to allow automatic logon.

Thank you kindly for a solution

Domain User but local admin?

Sounds to me like your local admin account and domain user account are different.

You can add your domain user account to the Administrators group which should give your domain account local admin privileges on that box.

Yes, Two different accounts

Thank you for your prompt and clear response.

The local admin account was setup when Win2K was installed.

The domain (local only) was added after the OS was up, as part of the networking configuration.

The logon screen (ctrl-alt-del)gives me an either-or option. I will try your suggestion when I am at the client tomorrow.

Thx

Log on as a local admin
go to control panel/user accounts
find your login name that's followed by the domain name, NOT the computer name. Click it and click properties and make yourself an Administrator (it's under "Other")

Log on as Administrator on the PC that you want to add the account to.
Right click on My Computer and select Manage.
Navigate to Local users and Groups and open Groups.
Double left click on Administrator and select Add.
Type in the User Account name and select Check Names.
The name should appear.
Click OK. Click Apply and OK again.
You will have to do this to each PC that you want the User to have Local Access to.

Domain username does not show on local machine

by gideon.goldstein In reply to Try this

I tried to follow the manage suggestion.

The "check names" draws a blank.

If I add the domain username manually through the control panel - will it allow me to allocate admin rights?

Select Users, Computers, or Groups screen;
Left click locations and select your domain.
You will then get a screen to authenticate.
Enter your domain\user name (TAB) then password.
You may then add the domain account.

MyDomain\Domain USer Name that has the rights.

My post clearly tells you login as the domain administrator, then only you can view "domain users" in "check names".
OR
u can use the method too explained by the previous poster "bwilmot@..", but login as a local administrator account user.

Log on with an account that has Domain Administrator priveleges on the PC that you want to add the account to. Preferably an account that has been given permission to add Computers to the Domain.

Right click on My Computer and select Manage.
Navigate to Local users and Groups and open Groups.
Double left click on Administrator and select Add.
Type in the User Account name and select Check Names.
The name should appear.
Click OK. Click Apply and OK again
