Oh, goody.  I have a person who brought a laptop to my network.  It was set up as part of a domain with some kind of login security.  In an attempt to give him access to our unsecured shared storage, I switched his machine (under the system control tab), from the default domain to a workgroup (ours).  After the reboot, he was completely unable to login to his machine!

Is there any way to get around this security, even just to switch his system from our workgroup to his domain?

johnjohn:

Not meaning to sound nasty, but administrators of corporate networks often frown upon making changes to a machine to enable it to bypass the security they have so painstakingly configured.

That being said, why not just have him return to work and rejoin him to his original domain again? He can return to wherever he was using the laptop and continue to use that network. If he doesn't have the permissions to do that, his Administrator at work certainly will.

Well, I'm the one who administers the local network, so that's not a problem.  We don't have any network based authentication.  The problem is that he's totally locked out of his laptop.

The solution was to obtain an administrator-class password to the machine, login, dial in to the domain, then rejoin.

This particular consultant didn't work out of the same city that the domain was physically located at, nor did he have plans to return there for several weeks.
