Windows Server 2008 R2 Domain Adminsitrator Login


I have a server that is on a Domain.  When I log in with the following:


Everything logs in correctly.

When I log in with the the Local Administrator:


Everything logs in correctly.

If I try to log in with the Domain Administrator and specify the Domain before the Username 'Incorrectly', it defaults to logging in with the Local Administrator Account.

Correct Way - RUS\Administrator
Incorrect Way - RUST\Administator (Defaults to Local Admin instead of giving error)

I've never seen this before on a server.  Any suggestions.?

If you want to fix it... change the local administrators password. It sounds like you are using the same password for the local and the domain. It defaults back to the local profile on invalid domains.
