User Accounts

Ok I have just upgraded to Win2k from NT4. I have 7 computers that were connected to a NT4 server running as a domain controller. I now have win2k server running as a domain controller and the other boxes are running win2k professional. I just setup the first client box with a local user account and the local permission I wanted the user to have on that machine. I then created a user account on the domain controller with the same name and pass as the local one. But when the user logs onto server it creates as new user profile and doesn't give the user the local permissions I set. Not sure what I'm doing wrong... but for this first box I want the user to have full administrative rights to his local computer while logged into the domain as well. I also want only one user profile... he has two profiles now, one when logged on locally and one when logged on to the domain. Any ideas on what to do?

Thanks

Another problem I have is I installed pagemaker 6.5 under the administrator account and when I switch to the domain account it won't run. Says registry settings are missing. I assume this is due to the user profile problem. *sigh* thought this was suppose to be easier, didn't have these problems under NT4.

What you need to do is log in as an administrator on the client machine and add his domain account to the local Administrators group. This should have been what you were doing in NT4.  

To do so, go to Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Computer Management and go the the Local Users and Groups>Groups section.  Click on Add and add the client's domain account.

As far as the pagemaker issue, I'd reinstall it after you do the above while logged in with the domain account and it should work ok.

Hope that helps!
