Hello, I have a small problem trying to connect 2000 Pro to my domain. I am trying to set the properties on the Network Identification tab of the systems settings. When I try to set my computer to be a member of the domain it tells me "The credentials supplied confilct with  an existing set of credentials". Currently in order to be able to work I have set the computer to treat the domain as a workgroup rather than a domain. Any ideas how I can solve this. Oh, bye the way the Domain is on an NT4 Server.

Thanks

From the server manager remove the computer
Remove any persistent mappings

Check the registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Network
 and remove any subkey.

Restart the PC as a workstation.

Try again to add the computer to the domain

Gee, have I looked for that prob quite some time...

Here is the solution: You need to login as a local admin to change the settings. Not as a user with admin rights, but as administrator itself.
