  1. Login Screen flashing after adding domain user as local admin


    I have a brand new computer Updated to latest version of Win 10 PRO. Brand new AD user account just created. I was able to login just fine without any issue. Once I added the user account as a local admin and logged the user back in, The screen just continually flashes and I am unable to do anything. ctr+alt+del brings up the options screen just fine. no blinking I have several other users running on the exact same hardware setup the exact same way without this issue. The only way to get past it is a hard shutdown or crtl+alt+del then log out or restart the computer. local admin user behave

    :)

  2. Can't login as local user after adding a computer to a domain


    Here are the steps I took. Please tell me if I should have done differently.

    1. On the server end add the user and computer to the domain in advance.

    2. Fresh install windows 10 and make the first username Admin.

    3. Once at desktop rename PC to match PC name on domain i.e. Workstation001.

    4. Add computer to mydomain.local and when asked for username and password I entered the credentials for the new user.

    5. Restarted the PC and signed into mydomain\newuser without any problems.

    However now when I try to access the original local Admin account by typing 'Workstation001\local Admin' as the username and then the password. It keeps saying password invalid.

    So I logged back into the domain account and tried resetting the password to Admin and then tried signing in as admin again, still no luck.

    Currently there are 2 accounts on the computer one of them is a local/domain account for newuser and the other is a local Admin account which I cannot access.

    What kind of glitch is this? Should I have not joined the domain through the original Admin account and instead added a local user to the PC 'newuser' and then sign in as that user locally then add them to the domain through their own local account? I didn't think this was necessary.

    Can't login as local user after adding a computer to a domain


    Your logon username for local is incorrect.

    If the username created was "Admin", then the local machine logon is:

    Workstation001\Admin (Omit "Local") It already knows you are logging onto the machine from the machine header.

  4. Login Screen flashing after adding domain user as local admin

    Adding Domain User as Local Admin

    Hi there,

    We are trying to set up the computer of one of our remote employees in house and are running into the issue that every time a setting is changed or a program is installed, it is requiring an administrator password from our domain. We don't want this (meaning
    having to put the domain admin password in every time) but keeping the domain on the computer is necessary for some of the software our company uses. Is there any way to make the domain user / local user an admin on the machine but not over the domain itself?
