Hi,
the difference between workgroup and the domain is
workgroup is a peer to peer network, no centralised administration and security is less.
domain is a client/ server network, administration will be done by domain and is more secure.

Forgot my password


As you have forgotten your system password, you need to reset your password to login to your Windows Vista. Before proceeding with resetting your password, you need to know if your computer is on a domain or in a workgroup. To know more about this, you can refer to the following Microsoft support page:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-in/windows7/what-is-the-difference-between-a-domain-a-workgroup-and-a-homegroup

If your system is on a domain, only your network administrator can reset your password. If your system is not on a domain, you can refer to the instructions mentioned on the following Microsoft support page to reset your password:
Important: Please select your Windows version appropriately from the drop-down menu on the top-left corner of the following webpage before reading the instructions.

Hope this will resolve your issue.

Says i am not putting right password


As your system is not accepting the password you are entering, we recommend you to reset your password and then login to Windows.

If your computer is on a domain, you need to contact your network administrator to reset your password. If your computer is on a workgroup, you can use a password reset disk to reset your password. To know the difference between a domain and a workgroup, you can refer to the following Microsoft support page:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-in/windows7/what-is-the-difference-between-a-domain-a-workgroup-and-a-homegroup

If you are using a local account, you can use your password hint to recover the password. If you are using Windows 8.1, you can reset your password online by using your Microsoft Account. To know how to use the above options to reset your system password, you can refer to the following Microsoft support page:
Important: Please select your Windows version appropriately from the drop-down menu on the top-left corner of the following webpage before reading the instructions.

Hope this will help you.

There is no room to enter a domain.


Hi,
I'm assuming that the operating system is XP.

Log in to your account as you usually would. Right click on My Computer and select Properties from the list. Click on the Computer Name tab. Where it says "To rename this computer or join a domain" click on change. A new window will pop up so click on Workgroup. In the typing plane if it say's MSHOME, delete that and type WORKGROUP make sure you type it in uppercase (capital letters).
When you've done that click OK.
The computer will tell you that you have to restart the computer for the changes to take effect so please restart the computer.

Once the computer has restarted you can check if the domain has changed to WORKGROUP.

Please post back if you need anymore help.

Regards.

How do i change the configuration from domain to work group


even if you mistakenly joined a domain you can still log in through your existing id and password.
Once your press CTRL+ALT+DEL, you will see a login window with three fields namely: user id, password and Domain.
In the log in screen use the drop-down menu in front of Domain (which shows your new domain- most likey MSHome) and choose 'this computer'. After this, enter your old/existing user id and password and hit enter.
Please proceed to your system settings and change your domain back to Workgroup. Restart PC.

I do have i mdb file on 1 pc and i need to shared wit 3 pc


First make sure all 3 PCs are on the same workgroup or domain. You can verify that in the System Properties, accessible by right-clicking the My Computer icon and selecting Properties, then selecting the Computer Name tab; below the Full Computer Name will be the domain or workgroup.

Once all 3 PCs are on the correct workgroup/domain, navigate to the folder where the file in question resides, and right-click the folder itself (not the file) and select Properties, and then the Sharing tab. From this tab you can select to share the folder, and set access restrictions if needed, and then the other 2 PCs should see the new share in their Network Places within a few minutes.

Windows cannot connect domain either domain controller is down or otherwise unavailable or because your computer was not found


The resolution and workaround to solve the error is as below.
  1. Login to the Windows 2003 domain controller, and delete the computer account object from the Active Directory by using Microsoft Management Console (MMC) which you can always access from “Manage Your Server”.
  2. Log-in to the PC workstation as local administrator. If you cannot logon as local administrator, try to unplug the network cable and logon to the computer by using a domain administrator user that used to logon on the PC before, by using cached logon credentials feature.
  3. Go to Control Panel, then click on System icon, then go to Computer Name tab.
  4. Unjoin the computer from the domain by clicking on “Change”. You should see that Domain button is now selected. Remember your domain name in the text box. Select (Click) on “Workgroup” to remove the computer from the domain, and put any workgroup name in the text box (e.g. workgroup).
  5. Click OK to exit.
  6. Restart the computer (optional)
  7. Go back to the Control Panel, launch System properties and then go to Computer Name tab, and click on “Change”.
  8. Rejoin the domain by uncheck the Workgroup button and select (check) Domain button, and put in the domain name noted above into the text box.
  9. Click OK to exit.
  10. Reboot the PC.
This should solve the unable to logon to domain error, without changing or losing the user profiles on AD.
