Unable to login to Server 2003 using adminitrator domain account


  • We were not able to login to a domain server with server 2003 using a Domain Admin account. We were able to log in using a Local Admin account. We tried dropping and re-adding the server to the domain, but still had the same issue. After logging in using the Local Admin account we created a new SID using sysinternals. This seemed to work, but the next day after a server reboot, we encountered that issue again. Any ideas why this is happening and why creating a new SID seems to fix the issue until a reboot?

  • Try adding Domain Admins to local administrators group.

  • Hi,

    Had you recieved any error messages during the login? I would appreciate it if you can post the error messages to us. In addition, could the domain admin account login on other domain members? You can also check in event log to see if any related information exisists.

    Best regards,
