Over the weekend I joined our 2000 Server, which is currently only serving as our financial accounting software server, to our existing 2003 Domain.  I created a new account with domain admin rights on the 2000 server under local users.  The only issue remaining is that Arcserve 9 is asking for the caroot password.  If I log off and back on as the local user that it previously was everything works, but I need to get this server on the 2003 domain.  Thanks

When you install arcserve, you have to specify if it uses its own internal accounts or a windows account. So if you were using caroot, hence the internal account before, it should not have changed.

I don't know if there is a definitive answer, but check the services for arcserve to see what account they are using.

My apologies as I left out a few key ingredients:  I am trying to get Arcserve 9  on the 2000 box to run as it did before I joined it to the domain. Now that I am a2003  domain admin user on the 2000 box it will not work.

When you enter the caroot password, do you get an error, or it just doesn't read the resources?

I would state incorrect password and close.  I ended up reinstalling the software and it works great.  Thanks for your help!

As annoying as it seems, the default process to reset the caroot password is install. So I'm glad that worked for you. Don't forget to close the question.
