Problems Logging in Locally to W2K Server (Domain Controller)

October 26th, 2005 - 02:30 pm ET by Greg | Report spam
OK, here's one that I've not been able to figure out. I had to reboot my DC
and when I'm attempting to log back in my only option "as it would appear" is
to log in under my domain username and password. After I perform a
Crtl-Alt-Delete and the login screen comes up, the dropdown box contains a
"blank" section where my local login used to be (i.e. "SomeComputer (this
computer)" and my domain name. Looked in the Domain Controller Security
Policy, found nothing weird, I have changed nothing on my servers. Oh BTW it
is also affecting my other servers on the network, same problem. Can log
into the domain but the local workstation option is blank. Just wondering if
anybody has run into this one before.

Thanks in Advance

There is no option to logon to the local computer when logging onto any
domain controller in normal startup - only the domain. There is no local SAM
of users and groups on a domain controller other than the built in
administrator account for that server that can be accessed when booting into
Directory Services Restore Mode or Recovery Console. Steve
