Hello,

I removed a windows 2000 member server, and after adding it back to the domain, I get errors about the computer account being incorrect.

Thank you

Have you gone in to Active Directory Users and Computers and deleted the old computer account? Then try again.

I have tried deleting the account, I tried reseting it first, but I still couldn't make it work.

I even forced replicate now in AD sites and services

After you deleted the machine account, did you allow the domain to fully replicate the change - if not the account might still be hanging around somewhere pending replication and deletion.

Check your replication with REPLMON (Support tools on the CD) if all is ok then Right-click on the domain in "Active Directory Users and Computers" and do a search for the computer account.

If you can't find it, try again and post the exact error message here

Cheers

Have you tried assigning it a different name and then joining it to the domain?
