Try loging in as root, when you 'change to domain' in network properties
(win2k). Make sure. of course, that there is an entry for root in smbpasswd.
After I logged in using the root account, it accepted me into the domain
(welcome to the yourdomain domain). My problem is now that when i reboot and
choose the domain, it wont let me log in, whatever account i use. It gives
"The system cannot log you on to this domain because the systems computer
account in its primary domain is missing or the password on that account is
So none of my accounts on either machine will log into the domain. ;(
Anyone come accross this?
