Greetings.  I have a windows NT 4.0 domain and one Win2K server that "logs in" to the NT 4.0 domain via the WinNT 4.0's administrator account.  I am having some issues with the local administrators account, however.  I need to add the domain admin to the local admins group on the win2k machine, but I can't.  I launch the MMC and try to add the domain admin, but the only place that I can choose users from is the local machine. I can not browse the DC for the admin....any ideas??  Thanks!!

Establish a connection to the domain before opening computer management.

Open a command prompt, type "NET USE \\<server>\C$ * /USER:<domain>\Administrator"

You should be prompted for the password for the administrator of the NT 4 domain.  Enter it.  You should receive the message "The command completed successfully".

Then open computer management and try to add the group.  If you don't see the domain in the list to choose from, just type in the box below it "<domain>\domain admins"

Is this computer joined to the domain? It needs to be a member of the domain before you can add Domain Admins group to it. Right click on the My Computer Icon and choose properties. Go to the network identification tab and see if it is a member of a domain or a workgroup.

Nevermind.  I figured it out.  There was a problem in server manager.  I had to delete the pc out of SM and then re-join the domain.  Everything's cool now.  Thanks!!
