So you are trying to login to a domain other than the domain that this server is authoritative for?

I'm not grasping your issue completely. If this server is not a Domain Controller, then the problem is that is cannot see the Domain Controller to authenticate. If it is a Domain Controller, incorrectly specifying your credentials.

Hope this helps?

local login should work....

On 2008 it is different to how it used to be with 2003.....


Now you have to attach the domain to the username....

for example, if your machine name is 'server1' and you want to log in as local administrator, you need to put the username as:   server1\administrator

then enter the password.

You can only log into domains that the server is setup for. You cant login to a domain if there is no DC controlling the domain, and also if you cant access the DC.

Try restarting the server.

This usually solves the problem.

You need UBCD.... if you create a UBCD disk, you can use its NT Password Reset Tool to enable the account and clear the password.

You can easily brick a server with this tool, though. Tread carefully.
