Default Grr this is terrible

Notice: I am the ONLY person with the ability to login to this computer. It is my sole responsibility to maintain.

This is a fileserver thats setup for remote access and has no easy pysical access. I need to access it outside of school hours for maintnience.

Today it joined the domain (took me long enough) and now my passwords dont work!

I likely inherited the boards security policy. This means NO local accounts can login to a computer unless it's in safe mode. The only people that can remotely access my PC now are full domain administrators, which I am not one of them

I should think before I click.

EDIT: Tried that first john, as it's the usual way I get in.

Ask the admins to remove the policy for that machine, it's easy to do and should only take them a couple of minutes.

I extremely doubt that, until I joined the domain I was the sole person with the password. It's seperate from any other school PC.

Anyways, today i try to get an admin account (the legal way) and if not off the domain it goes

I had an experience a while back that may or not help, I booted up one day, & I wasn't connected to my usual provider, I couldn't access absolutely everything, I did a thorough search, nothing, hidden files, the LOT, in the end, I had to call in my usual techie, very reliable, £20 call-out, plus £15 for each additional half hour, it took him nearlly an hour & a half, no he doesn't con me, the guy before did, this guy said it awas very well hidden, very hard to find, he tried to explain, but to be honest, he lost me, all I did notice was that he had to go into BIOS.

I notice your username went from CAPS to lower case halfway through. Are you capitalising, or not, correctly?

Just a thought.
