When you run administrative tasks on a Windows 2000-based domain where computers use 802.1x wireless networking for secure network access, you may not be able to modify the dial-in permission for computer accounts. If this occurs, you cannot manage computer authentication at the Active Directory level.
This problem may occur if the Dial-in tab does not appear in account properties for the computer.
To resolve this problem, follow these steps.
Important On one domain controller, you must have already installed Windows 2000 Service Pack 3 (SP3), and you must import the Mac80218.ldf file.

In this example, the active directory domain is domain.com.
