No logon servers available even though local logon

I built a server and shipped it across the country. It is a domain member. I tried to have someone there login to it locally using the local administrator account. This is running Windows Server 2008. I made sure they used computername\administrator, but it gives the error that no logon servers are available. I tried cached credentials from the domain, but with the same result.

How do I get into this server?

This is not a DC right?  If not, you can *always* log on as local admin so they have to be entering it incorrectly I think.

He is a retard. No matter how many times I told him computername\administrator he was using a forward slash. We are fine now. This person is clueless about Windows Server 2008. Thanks, for your help.
