Hey everybody, I just started messing with AD about three days ago, but I have one machine running as the AD DC computer, and another that joined the domain with no problems. The only wierd thing is that I can RDP into the Domain Controller no problem, but I cant rdp into the other Domain Computer using my default administrator acct, an acct I made and gave domain admin privs to, but I CAN login using the built in windows administrator acct. Any words of wisdom? I figure its not a firewall problem because I can use the local acct to rdp into it, its not a domain issue because I have a share folder between the DC and that particular Domain Computer so Im not sure.

The defautl administrator account you're talking about, is that the domain administrator account? If so, double check that domain admins is a part of the local administrator group on the domain PC.
