sorry if this is duplicte ...  I thought I posted this but could not find it...

I created a new windows 2003 domain in a test environment ...  all went well until I added my first workstation.

I am having secuirity issues locally even though the domain user has local admin rights.

one thing I noticed is there seems to be trouble reading the domain securities...

when I view the security tab the domain usre are shown as a question mark and a bunch of garbled numbers...

then after about 20 second they display properly

anyone seen this before?

    that only means, SID to user mapping is slow.
    are all clients/servers using a DC as DNS Server?

    no ... I installed WINS...   just one server ... and one workstation...  just for testing window 2003 server... before I upgrade my live domain...   would using DNS make a differnce?

    dns is a must for a 2003 domain.
    first install and config dns for your wanted zone.
    then use this dns server and dcpromo your first dc.
    without dns it will never function

    After reviewing this ... DNS was install and working.... the workstation was not configured to use it though...  so I made that change ... I still have the same issues.

    can you browse the AD from the workstation (AD Users & Computers)?
    what hardware is your dc? fast enough?
    the join of the workstation does work without any trouble?
    any eventlog entries on the workstation or on the dc?

    I would try joining the pc to a workgroup, rename it, then rejoin and make sure the PC has an entry in DNS.

    Also, what is the workstation, 2000, XP?  The reason I ask, is that the XP firewall could be slowing down the sid mapping.

    As WeHe stated earlier, the hardware may be an issue.

    make sure that the DC has the DNS server address set to itself in TCP/IP properties ...
