So, on host - config tab - properties - leave domain, then re-add?

Okay, removed and readded but still not working.

In the local users & groups tab- these show different users and groups to my other 5.0 hosts..

And permissions tab: not showing the domain when adding a group...

On the host when you go to the assign permissions the assign permissions dialogue comes up. If you click the Add button you will get the select users and groups dialogue. Do you see your domain in the domain drop down?
