I have a windows Server 2003 domain which recently will not let me access the domain correctly. By this i mean the following:
I add a laptop to the domain, restart the laptop and login to the server. By the time i get through admin tools and attempt to add the person’s username to the administrators group (so that they have full admin rights) the domain has disappeared from the list. Also the domain admins that are set as default show the long ID string instead of the user name, as if the information has not been handed down from the domain.
I can still access the servers fine (by browsing the IP number), i can print etc. I just cannot get the laptop to login to the domain using the persons AD login.
