Okay, this makes no sense to me.  Have 3 PCs that aren't on domain and are in a workgroup, all running XP pro.  I go to join them to the domain today, joined the domain fine.  But when i try to log on to them using the usernames i just created in AD for them, it won't let me log in, saying to enter a valid UN/PWD.  but no other PCs at this location are having problems accessing the PDC, and it joined the domain fine?  what could be the problem? never had this issue before

yes, i can log on with the domain admin, and yes on the drop down the domain is listed.  Thats what is baffling me.  Its on the domain and recognizes the domain and other users, just not the ones i just created.  I am wondering if it has something to do with the SID like NT used to do.  Or if i should add that computer to the AD...

Hmm - when did you create the user?
Can you logon to another system with that user?
Does the user appear in AD?  How many DCs?  Perhaps it hasn't propogated yet?

Hmm - not sure of a way to force it (can't think of a way right now anyway).

i figured it out.  becuase my DCs are spread out across the country, i have a different site/subnet for each in ADSS, so i just went into the NTDS settings for all the DC's and forced replication, worked like a charm..thanks for the help
