Probably an easy one, but I can't figure it out.

In our company, we have Windows Small Business Server 2008

We have bought a new PC with Win 8 Pro installed, the first one with Win8. How can I create a user account that is part of our domain?

I have been able to make the PC a member of the domain.
I have been able to create a local account, and I can create a "microsoft" account. Both use different paswords than the one used in the users domain account.

But how can I create an account in the style MYDOMAIN\MYUSER and with the domain password?

Hello, domain users are created at the local Domain Controller in ADUC (Active Directory Users and Computers). Unless you are a domain admin you cannot do that.

Yes, I understand that domain users are created on the sevrer, the account actually exists.

So I have an existing user on our COMPANY domain, say jjoner. In older windows versions, I logged him in with COMPANYDOMAIN\jjones and his domain pasword.

On the new Win 8 machine, a microsoft account has been created, called [email protected], with a different pasword.

So how do I get Win8 to understand that I want to use the domain account COMPANYDOMAIN\jjones with the pasword used in the domain?

when the computer boots to the logon screen, choose 'Other user' then in the user name type companydomain\jjones and provide the password in the lower box. If you don't see the 'Other user' option, click the back arrow to get to that screen.
