NT accounts in AD

By sigeplaxer ·
Hi

I have some people using Nt 4 Server and Workstation trying to emulate a customer's network. They can get an IP connection to the internet, but those machines do not show up in the DNS. When trying to log onto the domain with any of the machines the error "The system cannot log you on to this domain because the system's computer account in its primary domain is missing or the password on that account is incorrect". I have manually made an entry for one of the machines to try it, but the same error occurs. Doing an "ipconfig /release and /renew" gets the machine an IP address, but still will not allow a logon to the domain.

Not really sure about what you mean about "but those machines do not show up in the DNS", they would not unless they were manually entered into DNS.

Anyways, you need to remove the computer account in server mgr.

Then on the client side, disjoin from the domain into a workgroup.

Rename the system.

REBOOT! (very important in this instance, can not be skipped like usual)

After reboot and login, rejoin the client machine to the domain. (You need domain admin rights in case you have not figured that out)

After the reboot, you should be fine.

Had already tried that, but wasn't sure of procedure. I did get it up eventually, then I was sent to another office for a bit.
