this may be a stupid one, but anyway, here it goes.

i was tinkering with an win2k machine and, in an attempt to change the *local* administrator password, the program doing it disabled syskey. now the system allows me to login as an admin locally, but any *domain* logon is refused by the server with an typical 'incorrect password or user' error message. the thing i want to know is if disabling the syskey protection may affect the client - domain relation.
/i was logging in at the domain with an blank-password user, so it can't be simply a password typing error/
