Win2kPro Logon error

When logging on to a W2k Pro standalone machine, I get
the error "The system cannot log you on now because the domain XYZ is not available"

Any ideas on the reason for this happening?

Thanks
Ben

At the login prompt, do you have the option to log on locally?

Nope. Might have made it easier, wouldn't it?

Are you loggin in as Administrator?
Win2k allows a user to logon even if not plugged into the domain. I'm rather perplexed.

So am I. And there seems to be no way to get into that machine. It never was part of a domain (it is a home PC). The machine seems to have lost reference to the "local machine". Guess the user played (stuffed) around and managed to break something.

If you click the Options button you will get another box with a drop down arrow. Do you have the local computer name and also another name in there?
