Domain Account Login Problem on Virtual PC

Filed under: Microsoft,technology — Larry Parker @ 3:45 pm

I just tried logging into a virtual PC of mine (Microsoft Virtual PC 2007) using my domain account at my company and got the following error:

My domain account worked before, so something must have changed but I couldn’t figure out what.

A quick Google search turned up this article which describes the same problem I was having, including the solution.

Turns out that you just need to take the virtual pc off the domain and then rejoin.  Now I’m in business!

But you still need a way to log into the virtual pc with administrator rights, so it’s important to have a local account for that.

Hope this helps.
