changed Network settnigs to "Workgroup" now I cannot logon
Posted on 2003-03-01
I was using a networked Win 2000 machine in the office. ordinarily the machine searches fro my usermane and password in a particular network domain. I tried to set up a small network and changed my machines newtwork settings to connect to a WORKGROUP rather than the DOMAIN it usually connects to. I was prompted to restart, but now a the logon screen it has no way to identify my username.
There are advanced options at the logon prompt, but there does not appear to be a way to swith from Workgroups back to Domain logon.
I assume that there is some syntax I can use in the username to indicate that I want to have the machine search the DOMAIN for my user ID (maybe something like..
USERNAME: $DOMAIN//userid or something similar)
i might be abe to issue commands from command prompt, but I'm not sure how to switch back the settings to search the DOMAIN from there..
ANy help would be appreciated
