Unable to login after disjoined from domain and Local security policy does not allow local user to login

    Question

  • These are the steps that I did:

    1. Disjoint from the domain.

    2. Tried to login using Local user: It shows " The local policy of this system does not allow you to login interactively"

    How to login then?

    I am unable to join to the domain.

  • Probably need to use the local administrator account. If that fails this one may help.

  • I would add, if you got a local administrator password, try remotly to check what local GPO are behind applied into the computer. (to be able to undo any change)

    Never forget that sometime there is GPO that remove any local account, be sure it's populated before the disjoin

  • did you try to reboot in safe mode and log in with the local administrator account, if the local admin account is disabled it should be enabled when rebooted into safe mode. you could also run DART if you have SA it is part of the desktop optimization pack it has an tool to rest the local administrator account.

  • If I can't login, and currently do not have a backup set of data, how do I restore?

    I heard that Acronis can backup the data without even logging into windows.

    Not sure whether  it is true or not.

  • You might want to ask in Acronis forum about their software use / functionality.

  • There are couple of tools you could use to clear the local Admin PW, here is one that I like

    http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/

    if that link doesn't work just do a quick search for "Offline NT password & registry editor" and it should give a place that you can download it.

    One of the reasons I like this tool is that it can be used to unlock and enable the local Admin account as well as set/clear the PW. Hopefully the GPO just disabled local admin account or at least didn't delete ALL the local accounts, if thats the case you should be able to just enable the account, clear/set the password, and then login with the account.

    I'm not real sure but you MIGHT (VERY BIG MIGHT) be able to use something like the "net user" cmd

    here is a you tube clip that might help as well. but again I'm not so sure about this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QOx6dI0grow


    Thanks in Adavance
