Adding computer names to Server Manager

By pgulliksen ·
I add computer names in Server manager for the install guys to run up new machines. Some times when they enter the new names to the pc's they connect first go, other times a new name is added to a new install and a message comes back saying cannot connect to domain. We then have to delete the name and wait some where between and 1 hour to 24 hour for the name to be deleted from the system. We can add the machine again and it works ok. Also it can be a couple of days after I have enter the computer names the the guys get around to running up the machines as wel and the same thing happens.

First, ensure that physical cable connection is OK. Can check by PING utilities if TCP/IP is installed.

Second (As Ans 4) select the Workgroup name as the domain name and reboot.

Third change the domain name. Be sure you are directly connectedwith PDC otherwise synchronize the domain.

Thanks

UPDATE... All the Tech onsite needs is to be added to the "Server Operator" global croup to add a machine to the domain.

Man all these responses...and so much info.

Here try this....
Resync your BNC, this should clear up the 1 to 24 wait time.
Allow your techs to create the WS names and allow them to add the WS to the Domain.
