Computer account deleted

me = dumbhead, deleted a computer account from my AD.(Yeah I know, I'v should have disabled it, but I wanted to test)

I recreated the computer account (I know, new SID). When I want to rejoin the domain from my client machine a get :
"The credentials supplied conflict with an existing set of credentials".
I've tried renaming the computer in a workgroup, and then tried to rejoin the domain, but it doesn't work.

Any help will be appreciated.

Regards

First, try resetting the computer account and rejoining the machine.  If that fails, I'd remove the computer account again and with the workstation in workgroup mode, I'd reconnect it to the domain.

That error generally happens when you have another connection to the server other than the computer session.  For example if you are connecting to shares or printers on the server, that can be done via share level sessions.

Make sure your client workstation has NO connections to the server, then you can rejoin the AD/domain and then reconnect your shares.

Thx Jhance, You're right.
I have disconnected all shares (searched a bit and found some hidden ones also) and now I was able to reconnect to the domain.

May I ask where you got this knowledge?  Training, experience, others ?
