Start Net Logon Service on BDC

I have an interesting question.
A BDC that I built is not starting the net logon service
at boot and i get "access denied" when i try to start it.
i ran netdom mybdc /reset and it says the account is
locked. ouch. I have rerun the command with the same results. The machine doesn't show up in the browse list
but I have an entry showing in wins and of course in server
manager where i added the bdc to the domain. I can ping it
by name and by ip but when i try to access it with nbt i
don't get connected; it complains about the net logon service. help???

I'm supprised that NETDOM BDC mybdc /RESET did not work.  I've experienced the same problem and this fixed it.

Have you tried removing the BDC from the domain by changing its domain affiliation, and removing it manually from the domain with Server manager...  Then adding the BDC back into the domain?  

This definately sounds like that nasty "secret" BDC / PDC password thing.

you mean by changing its domain affiliation?
Do you have a system logon account setup under services and Netlogon .  This account has to have admin access.  Check to see if this is the case

I have an nt4 bdc in a win2k domain where the win2k server in the DC. The migration was completed two weeks ago and suddenly the winnt bdc net logon servive no longer starts at start up with an error access is denied.
Also when a user changes his account password from his pc, the DC does not syncronize and he can't access his files. What do you believe is casuing the errors. I tried starting the net logon on the bdc with no luck. Everything was working sooth from the migration until this. Now it looks like the bdc and DC are no longer syncronizing.
