Ghost 7.5 cannot rejoin deployed computers to domain.
Posted on 2003-03-11
Symantec have just recommended to make sure user/pass is set correctly on server and on user account used by Ghost 7.5 server
AND failing that:
Delete user account used by the server, Reinstall to receate it. I then have to manually give the account permission to create computer accounts so it doesn't stop adding at 15 computers.
I have correctly set-up the GHOST SERVER account since it creates the machine accounts in the active directory.
It seems to be an intermittent issue(s) since there have been times when the whole task completes successfully.
I haven't noticed a working combination of Unicast/Multicast/Broadcast and number of computers.
Error messages include 'Failed to join domain BSHS: The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted' even though 30 other computers connect okay.
In the Post-configuration status - 'Failed to join domain BSHS: Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password' for a whole room. Is that the server account it's talking about because it makes no sense? !
'Failed to join domain BSHS: The network location cannot be reached.' For 12 out of 25 PCs. I can still ping them and connect to them.
I need to use the Remote Desktop Connection to log in and connect to the PCs and manually join them to the domain. I have tried using NETDOM JOIN but I just get a 'Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password.'
This is a school environment. We have two W2K DCs each running a DHCP, DNS, WINS. They are WinXP Pro clients.
Please help! You can have all 75 points of mine! (geez you say)
