Default Server can not join domain?

Hei all.

I have a server 2008 running as an DC. Now i have setup an server nr 2 also running win 2008 server.
The thing is after i configure the server 2 whit all the basic info it needs static ip etc. All this time i was logged in as local administrator, i made the server 2, join the domain and after i had restarted server 2, i could not log onto it whit the domain admin account.

How can i make server 2 part of the domain ? do i need to Create an User in the active directory ? or give domain admin the administrator rights ?

Thanks all for your input.

Default Server can not join domain?

If it successfully joined the domain, then there's no reason why the Domain Admin account wouldn't work. You didn't tell us the error you get when trying to login, however, so I'm not sure what more I can offer. You don't need to make a separate user account in AD for it however, the Domain Admin account will work fine.
