Yesterday I registred on dyndns.org and setup a Host for Dynamic IP. Then used the DNSUpdate app to have it auto-update each time I connect to the net...
However, I forgot I had bound that machine to AD (which is real bad cause AD frowns on reverse DNS lookups to anything but its own)...
What happens now is that I cannot login to my local admin user account while connected to the network... Password is always refused... However the moment i remove the network cable, thus not connecting anymore I can login immediately...
Anyone have any idea what is changed by my steps in the system ? my /etc/hosts and /etc/hostconfig files are as they were before too... I realy have no idea what is happening...
The only suggestion I got from the AD admins here is that I have to wait a couple of hours for the DNS info to go back to their info instead of what I go from dyndns... But i'm not sure that this is the case.
