Joining Vista Ultimate to a Domain

  ventanas 10:03 09 May 2008

Don't know if anyone else has had problems with this, but I've just spent a very happy few hours struggling. Domain is SBS2003 and the only user on the Vista machine was me. The problem was obviously privileges. My admin account (running as standard obviously) wasn't good enough. So I eventually chose to enable the administrator account (disabled by default in Vista)
Command prompt as administrator and type:
net user administrator /active:yes
Log on as admin and set your usual admin password.
The try the Domain. It worked straight away.
May be of some help to others.
