Looks like the account you're using doesn't have sufficient permissions/privileges.  Is there a different account you can try?  You could also try using 'net user' on the command line.

'net help user' will show you the full syntax but basically this:

net user {username} {password}

Open in new window

How do you log into your computer(s)?  If it's a domain member - indicating you have a Domain Controller - there will be a domain option.

If the server you're on is a Domain Controller then you have to make the change using 'Active Directory Users & Computers' not the 'Local Users and Groups'.  That would be why it's inaccessible.

Assuming that is the DC you're logged into, you're going to need to take a look through the Event logs and see what - if any - errors are showing up.  Make sure that DNS is running.

It means it was unable to load performance counters for a particular dll.  I don't think it's related to your specific problem.

Check for DNS under services.  Are you logged into the Domain Controller?

Are you logging in with 'Administrator'?  If not, either the account you think has Admin privileges actually doesn't or your AD environment is having serious problems.

If you ARE using 'Administrator', try right-clicking on 'Active Directory Users & Computers' and see if you get an option to 'Change Domain'.
