Adding client to domain
Posted on 2006-11-27
Well, I goofed this morning.
I removed a computer from a Windows 2000 domain, then found that I do not know the local Administrator password on the computer, or any other local user info. So I am effectively locked out of the machine.
I do have several utilities for viewing or resetting local user passwords, which would require me to travel to another location to retrieve them (on CD), then return. Before I do that, I am wondering if there is a method to re-join the computer to the domain from the Domain Controller?
FYI: I have attempted to use "net use" and soon.exe remotely to reset the password, but access was denied, indicating the local security policy is preventing network access.
