I created a subdomain.  I am using server 2003 R2 64 bit.  I created an domain admin account.  for the subdomain.  

When I reboot and get to the login box I only see my main domain and my subdomain but I cannot see my local machine?

Hi, if you are trying to logon locally in the server wich is a Domain Controller you cannot log on the local machine because the local machine domain doesn't exist in a Domain controller.

I Hope this Helps.

Regards.

Paulo.

The Administrator account still works, it's just now in the Domain.  The local SAM (as we know it) is no longer available after promoting a server to a DC.  Everything is now in the AD.

Yup.. your right..  I don't know what I was thinking.  I am trying to install SAP software on a domain controller and it won't let me so I am looking every where for a solution.
