  • Domain to Workgroup Now can not go back to domain. Plesae help

    Hi there
    I made a really great mistake. I was trying to connect my laptop to my office pc so i had to configure the domain to the same workgroup as my laptop. And after restarting there is no domain exist and i can not login to the server. from the local user i tried to establish the domain but it is asking for the username and pass (domain admin pass i suppose). i do not have the domain id and password. now dont have access to my office files and no security and other issues . please help how can i get it fixed. i dont want to reset the pass, just reveal the pass word. is there any live cd available to do that. if i cant fix it i'll be in big trouble with my boss. so please help.

    thanks in advance.

    Go to your IT department, bring in a huge cake and ask them to reconnect your laptop to the domain.

        You can't join the domain without the domain admin credentials. If you get into trouble, then it's because you've breached company policy, and if that is the case then we're not going to help you cover it up.

          First of all, think about your attitude, and read this in multiple ways.
          You have possible breached the companies security policy and the laptop needs to be checked by the IT department.
          Take your responsibility.

              I am not sure whether they deserve the cake for giving normal users such rights to join a workgroup in the first place .... Unless of course it is a "bubby trap" in order to get more cakes

                Well I've worked for a company where the internal IT department (I was external) wanted that every user was a local admin.
                Well I kicked and kicked and kicked but I'd lost it.

                Sometimes you have no choice.

                  I believe any Authenticated user can join machine to the domain up to 10 times by default.

                    From the wording of the question, it sounds like the user has already tried to rejoin the domain, and failed - most IT departments don't want users joining machines to the domain, which is understandable. Keep in mind that the original question also asks how to reveal the domain admin password - incredibly dodgy.

                    Couple that with the fact that he'll get into trouble if this is revealed to his boss, then it sounds suspicious.

                      Fully agree that it is not the road that he needs to take to get this issue taken care of. I was just stating the fact that you donít have to have the Domain Admin rights to join computer to the domain.

                        There is option that it has been disabled.
                        Also I think that when someone breached his company (security) policy he should take his responsibility.
                        But yet, your right, per default it's possible to join up to 10 clients to the domain.
