W2k Fileserver will not join SBS2000 domain with domain admin having administrative local rights to W2k server machine.

Good Day Experts,

I removed a w2k fileserver from our SBS2000 Domain and received the error " the computer has been disjoined from the domain but the administrative account was not inactivated" and then when i try to re-add the server to the domain and login afterwards i don't have rights to make shares available or start SQL server services with the SBS domain admin account.  Is there a quick fix?

Many THanks,

Ellsworth

Isn't clear for me, the server was rejoined to the domain succesfully?

Yes the server is rejoined to the domain though the domain admin login doesn't have local administrative rights to the w2k server.  Like i can't create shares or start services when i log on to the w2k server with the domain administrator.

Thanks,

How could I access user accounts when i log on locally with the local admin account?

Logon as a local administrator (not domain) go to My PC/<right click>/Manage/Local User and Groups/Groups/Administrators and add your "Domain Admins" group, but this must be done automatically when you join the domain.

Wpadron,

The problem was that i had the TCP/IP settings set so the fileserver was looking for our external DNS server being that i had to use the internet while our internal DNS server was down.  Once I put in the correct DNS address everything worked perfectly.  

Thanks for your comments and effort: )
