The user domain\username could not be added to the Administrators group because domain\username does not exist
Posted on 2005-03-03
I am trying to add local administrative rights onto a laptop. I believe that I have it joined to the domain correctly. This pc needs to function with network software when off and on the network. I believe I have most of those problems licked. unfortunately I can not get it local administrative rights. Everytime I try I recieve the message "The user domain\username could not be added to the Administrators group because domain\username does not exist". I've tried being logged on with admin rights locally, and on the network both give this message. I also tried unjoining it from the network and then giving privledges. I always get the same message. I really am against the wall here, I need it working by tomarrow morning. The lap is a Gateway with Intel pentium m processor 1.60Ghz 480 mb RAM, xp por sp2, server is win2k server, AD, dhcp. all other comps on system are connected fine with no problems. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
