That is an issue. I wouldn't be surprised if other machines randomly 
have issues due to this. Then again, we have been running AD since 2003 
and my memory is foggy of NT-style setups, so it may keep going. Still, 
I would encourage upper-management to consider upgrading to AD, but 
that's just me. NT stuff hasn't been supported by MS for years.
