Your ghost sounds interesting.  Can you just remove the ghost? Do you have a
GPO that's trying to put the user account in the local admins?

As for disconnecting and reconnecting with a different account, you can, but
that doesn't sound like it solves the original problem as well.  It would be
a PITA to repermission the folders out there that rely on the users AD sid.

If you can fix the local workstation, that would be a better route IMHO
based on the information given.

Subject: [exchangelist] Crazy Problem

I have a crazy problem, primarily with Win2k server, but I'm trying to find
a workaround.  My problem is that i have a ghost user.  I have a user who
everything was working fine.  One day she couldn't access her exchange
mailbox.  I try working on the machine, then try to readd her to the local
admin group.  There are two users, the one that should be there and another
with the username and the serial number following it.  Adding both will not
let me gain amdin privs.  The second user does not show up on Active
Directory users and computers anywhere.  I have checked the lost and found,
but nothing.

anyway If you have fix for the above, that would be great, but how about a
workaround.  Is there anyway to create a new user, make that user have the
same e-mail address as the old user, but different logon.  Can I then
reassociate the old users mailbox to the new user.

Confusing but I'm reaching here.

Thank You
