  • Incorrect Domain Name

    Symptoms: Try to log on to Windows Server 2000 as Administrator, logging into Shepherd. My password does not work.

    I am able to get in via Safe Mode and change password, but that does nothing.

    Apparently, I am making changes to the local Administrator password, but not the domain Administrator password.

    Network Identification on My Computer:
    Full Computer Name - Shepherd2K.Shepherd
    Domain - "Unknown"

    To rename this computer or join a domain click properties and the Properties button are greyed out.

    Note: The identification of the computer cannot be changed because:
    -The computer is a domain controller

    I am unable to work in the Active Directory.

    This computer is no longer attached to a network.

    Is there any way I can change the domain name? Is there any way I can log in without Safe Mode?
