Imaged pc with ghost. Added new OU  to Domane. Not able to logon as user for which the OU was intended. Logon fine as different user. I believe that it could be a problem with rights and permissions in AD but I'm not sure... Please help!!

Have you added the computer to the domain?

Are you able to logon as anyone else from the domain on the new computer?

I don't think the issue is the domain.  I work ans support a Multinaional domain and users come from Asia etc and can logon  to the European domain as long as they select the correct domain.

Do it on your Domain controller.

1.  Start->Run->dsa.msc
Now you should see Active Directory User and Computers

2.  Find the Lab id.

3. Right Click on it and select properties.

4. On Preperties windows Goto Account Tab.

5. Here you will see Log on To Button, click on it.

6. This is where you can specify the list of computers, this id is allowed to logon.
