JSI Tip 3781. The Default user policy is applied to all NT 4.0 users in a domain that was upgraded from Windows NT 4.0 to Windows 2000?

The subject behavior will occur if you chose Permissions compatible only with Windows 2000 server in Dcpromo.exe and clients are running Windows NT 4.0 with SP4 or earlier.

Open a CMD prompt and type:

net localgroup "Pre-Windows 2000 Compatible Access" everyone /add
