Just an idea, but perhaps the local admin you are logged in as on the
machine being built has the same username/password pair as the domain
administrator account? If you were to change the local admin password to
something different, or not set it the same during Windows setup, you
may not have this issue.

Thank you for replying.
When I access resources, I mean I actually map a drive.
For instance I can map a drive to \\computer\c$ and it let's me in.
The user I'm logged into on the machine at the time is usually the local
admin on the box.
