cannot gain local administrator access to server after I put it on Domain

I have just put a stand alone server onto our domain.  When we try to gain access to the root folder now but using the UNC path \\192.168.0.x\c$ and use the local administrator UN and PW we get an access denied.

Any ideas?

Could it be that you have a Group Policy which either renames the local administrator account or disables it.  Ask your domain administrators to check the status of the local accounts.
