Cannot Log On to the Domain or the Local machine after setting up dual copies of win2k
Posted on 2004-08-26
I have a Win2k Pro workstation. It is a member of an SBS 4.5 based domain. I installed a second copy of Win2k Pro onto the machine to improve disaster recovery (this is ironic). The original installation is installed on C:\WINNT. When installing the second copy the intaller suggested installing on drive D: so I installed it in D:\winntspr. During network setup I tried to give the second copy a different computername "JUPITERSPR" instead of "JUPITER". Unfortunately, it reverted back to the original computer name of Jupiter.
The second installation works fine but I now cannot log in to the original installation either against the Domain or locally.
The first installation has all the applications set up in it. I'd prefer not to have to reinstall and reconfigure all of those.
I have tried repairing the original installation using setup and the ERD, but no luck.
Can anyone offer any solutions ?
