Win2k connecting to NT domain, oh woe is me
Posted on 2003-03-07
Okay, im having a problem connecting a Win2K machine to an NT domain.
Right, where to begin. The machine used to be part of the domain, it was then removed from the domain at a later date. The machine name has been removed from the domain (i checked) and the name is unique on hte network. When i try and add the machine back itno its old domain it gives the error: -
"The credentials supplied conflict with an existing set of credentials."
After checking out some of the other articles on this site, i checked to see if the machine had any other connections to the DC open. i checked NET USE, and sure enough there was no connections. Oh, i am logged onto local administrator.
As a long shot, i added it to our ADMIN domain (i work in a school, we have curriculum and admin domains), rebooted it, logged on, removed it from the domain, and added it to the workgroup STUFF. I then logged on again, and tried to add it to the curriculum domain again, and sure enough i got the same error. I move to a working machine, and check the machine is not already in the list of machines that are members of the domain, and no it isnt. Once again, i double check that it is a unique name, and it is.
I hope you managed to follow that. Extra information: -
20Gb disks (Maxtor)
GeForce 3 cards (they do some graphics processing)
no sound card
Microsoft mouse and keyboard
with a 3C905C-TX eth. card.
It is in a room with 9 other machines, all of which are networked via the same switch, they all logon fine.
Any help would be gratefully recieved, hey, if you live in NE England i might even be able to repay with beerage.
