Renamed Administrator acct.- now requires username@domain.om to logon

I just renamed my admin acount to something less obvious.  Now, I can only log on by adding the domain name at the end of username to log in.  I remember a box that was blank that asked for @domain.com but I cannot seem to go back and change.  Any suggestions to correct?

I do have another Admin account set up.

smeek,
Back in the Account Properties Tab in ADUC, make sure the new name for the account is in the 'User logon name(pre-Windows 2000)" box.

Are you talking about logging into a PC that you are standing in front of, remotely administering, or are you trying to access a network share?

I right-clicked the Admin acount, chose the RENAME option, completed boxes in wizard.

Logging in at console.  Also applies if I try to TS to box.

when you go to logon, is the domain set to your domain or the local computer?

I tried ADUC.  It does not offer a way to unchoose the UPN format naming.  

I am logging into the domain.  If I try and logon using the

Username
Password
Domain

The domain is prefilled with correct domain name but if I try regular username and password, it does not log in.  If I try username@domain.com, the domain field grays out and the password is accepted.

the domain name field is supposed to be greyed out,,, thats b/c it pulls the domain info from the @domain.com just as it is designed to do.

You should only be entering the username, password, and domain once each, and must enter all.  If you put username@domain.com, Windows knows that it is both the username and domain.
