Hello Everybody, I can't login to adminstrator profile in my standalone win 2000 adv server. I use this system for my study purposes. What happened actually is when I was shuting my system, it got powered off because of some UPS problem and the next time when I logged in using Administrator, it showed me "can't login as the local profile is corruted" and it automatically logged in as NTAuthority/System and did not allow me to save anything. However, I was able to create another user and got all my data in Administrator.bak profile. Is there any way to login as Administrator without formating? Any advice on this would be highly appreciated. Thanks

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You now have to log in as Domain Administrator. Put the PC in the domain and log in as Domain administrator. You have to first pre-stage the server, then from a command prompt on another member server or domain controller, type nltest /server:name of your server.your domain/trusted_domains. Hope that helps

    If you've already added a user with admin priveledges, just log on as that user or log in as the NTSystem?Authority user. Right-click on "My Computer" and select "Properties". Click on the "Advanced" tab and then click on the "Settings" button in the box that says "User Profiles". From here, you should be able to select the Administrator and delete the profile. If that doesn't work, just go to c:documents and settings and rename the Administrator folder. Good Luck!
