  • Am I logging on locally to a DC?

    Hi,

    SBS 2002, the only server in the network..

    I'm trying to troubleshoot a installation of Backup Exec, where the Administrator can't connect to a SQL Experess DB.

    As I'm working my way through the process, I see that in Documents and Settings there are folder for both Administrator, and Administrator.machinename.

    It looks like I'm logged in as Administrator.machinename.. I didn't think it was possible to logon as a local admin to a DC.. And I'm wondering if this might be tied to the SQL connection issue.

    Could I be logged in as a local admin?

    Thanks
    David

    Is it SBS 2003, SBS 2000 or Windows Server 2003 or Windows 2000 Server. You posted SBS 2002 which I assume was a typo but then you posted in the Windows Forum and not the SBS Forum.

    Please clarify. Thanks.

      Sorry, type. SBS 2003... Should I repost in SBS forum? I didn't scan far enough down the list

      Thanks

        I didn't think it was possible either if the system was a DC.

        I'm going to move this to the Misc forum as its really related to Backup Exec on a SBS 2003 box so not really anything to do with SBS.

          The "administrator.machinename" could be the profile set up when the server was logged on to during installation -- before it was promoted to a DC

          But unless you are booted in safe mode, you cannot log onto a DC with a local account
