Credentials supplied conflict - Win2k

My Win2k Pro laptop is configured with a Name of "Deln5" in the domain "ASI" and logs into a Win2k Server (ASI
is the only domain.
The server uses DHCP and Active Directory). When I take the laptop home I must reconfigure the network settings
to get onto the ATT Cable network so the Name is "C1456" and the domain is "@home". When I come back
into the office I must change the network settings back to Deln5 and ASI. However, if I attempt this,
I get the following message: "The following error occurred attempting to rename the computer to DelN5:
The credentials supplied conflict with an existing set of credentials."

In the past if I went to the server and deleted the DELN5 computer account, I could then reconfigure
my laptop. But now, even though DELN5 has been deleted from the Server, I get this message every time
I attempt to rename my PC from "C1456" to "DELN5". (I was able to get back into the ASI domain.).

How do I eliminate this problem and rename my PC to DelN5?

Remove the computer from the domain when you are still connected to the ASI domain. This will tell the ASI server that you computer has left the domain, and thus should get rid of the problem.

probably not the case but just to check to make sure someone hasn't renamed their computer to DELN5 try running the following from a command prompt.
NBTSTAT -a DELN5

If found it will give you the MAC address and the login name of the person that is currently logged in.
