Rejoining Domain

By surveymaster.shivaram ·
We upgraded our Domain Controller to Windows 2003. Everything working fine except one of our Windows 2000 Advanced Server (our database server). It was poor performance ,it takes for ever to logon to DOmain. So we decided to remove from the domain and rejoin the domain. We have problem rejoining the domain. I deleted the computer account from Domain Controller still I couldn't join the server to DOmain.
I can ping the DC by name and ipaddress from this database server. It has a static IPaddress with the same subnet as DC. Is there a tools available to fix this problem. We want to keep the server name same as before.You help on this issue is greatly appriciated.

This has also happened to me before, what I did is I reconfigured the machine afresh that is giving the computer a name again, put Ip address, add it on a domain controller.I did this after making sure there is no problem with network card, cable, hub(switch)ports.If all fail try to put a new network card and reconfigure your database server.Good luck

First thing to make sure is you either delete the old Server name from the domain. Second ping the Dc using dcname.domainname.com This would ensure DNS is working OK.

BTW what is the error message you get when you try to join the domain. If it says cannot find the domain then it is a DNS issue. else it should be old account issue.
