    Being responsible for a server is a little bit like driving
    a big truck. You can probably do it if you know how
    to drive a small car but sooner or later you are likely to
    come to grief.

    Your questions in this and in other newsgroups suggest
    that your experience with Windows in general and with
    servers in particular is still limited. My considered advice at
    this stage would be for you to attend a full-time server
    training course as soon as possible, before your business
    suffers irrepairable damage. If you should lose important
    and irreplaceable business data for some reason then your
    manager is unlikely to accept an explanation such as
    "I never received proper server training". He is more likely
    to say "We lost our key client due to your incompetence".

    I urge you to act now, to avoid this unpleasant situation.

    HI Pegasus

    I'm not a system administrator and as you as you saw from my posts I'm more
    programmer.

    The thing is that our win 200 server (for intranet crashed yesterday) and I
    was able to repair it, all I want know is to continue the setup and I have to
    change the username.

    By the way, the person that setup all the network, give us a course how to
    manage and how to reinstall the server if it's crash, but he didn't mention
    anything about my question here. And acctually he left the entreprise

    thanks

    Mmh. Your system administrator has left the company, so your
    trucks are now coasting along without a qualified driver . . .
    I recommend you make your reservations known to management
    while things are going fine, in writing. It will be too late when
    disaster strikes and everyone ducks for cover.

    To rename the administrator's account on a Win2000 machine,
    run compmgmt.msc, open "Local Users and Groups", "Users",
    then right click the Administrator and rename the account.

    To register the machine on the domain, get into Control Panel /
    System / Network Identification / Properties.

    Good luck. You might need it.

    1. Turn off this machine's firewall until finished.
    2. Start a Command Prompt on the machine that you
    wish to register on the domain.
    3. Ping the domain controller. Does it work?
    4. Check the domain name. It ***cannot*** be the same as
    the name of the domain controller.
    5. Try to join the domain.
